By definition, the Office of Student Accounts is not a place students go to for fun. Usually when 
we find ourselves tromping up the steps to Miller Business Center and approaching the Student Ac- 
counts window, we're planning on banging some heads together until our problem gets fixed. 

Mrs. Sharon Bellomy is not afraid of the onslaught. Rather, she diffuses it with grace and a kind 
word. "She's so warm and inviting," explains Marlin Wallace, Director of Student Accounts. "It's really 
helpful. That is not an easy job." 

Dealing with everything from holds on accounts to negotiating with parents, Mrs. Bellomy has a 
true gift for refreshing those around her. "When I worked with her for 12 years, I never saw her once 
get irritated with a student," explained David Pickering, Director of Business and Human Resources. 
"When a student would come to the window complaining, she would always be nice, always sweet, 
always kind. And she always thought the best about that person." 

Before working at Olivet, Sharon and Ray- her husband of forty years- spent seventeen years in 
pastoral ministry. "She struggled a little with the pastor's wife role, because smaller churches aren't 
always kind," Mr. Bellomy explained. "But she has a kind spirit- she's just on that side most of the 
time. She can overlook faults, and she's very forgiving." 

Sharon is attentive to her home and family, described by Ray as a protective and sensitive mom 
to their adopted daughter, Kristen. She loves to cook, and has an outstanding reputation as a baker- 
particularly when it comes to apple dumplings- with her coworkers. Sharon is engaged with their 
church in a myriad of ways, teaching Sunday School, singing in the choir, and even making appear- 
ances with the youth group drama team on occasion. 

"When she does things with kids, she's right in there," Ray said. He recalls one particular church 
costume party when she donned a "ridiculous clown costume, with a real curly afro-type wig. The 
kids just had a blast," he remembered with a laugh. Sharon's care for kids is a replanting of seeds of 
love that were sown in her. Adults in the church took her under their wing as child to mentor and drive 
her to Sunday school, despite the lack of support her parents showed. Eventually, through her strong 
example, both of her parents came to faith in Christ. "I think it makes her understand; the fifth grad- 
ers she teaches still connect with her," Ray said. Sharon's whole life springs from her core of faith. 
Nominated as "Most likely to pray with a student" at annual staff meetings, her life is an example of 
Colossians 3:23: "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, 
since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you 
are serving." As Pickering puts it, "She truly thinks she's doing it for the Lord; that's why she's so nice 
to you." 

Her spirit transforms the window at Student Accounts into a little window to heaven. "A lot of kids 
end up just standing at the window talking to her," Pickering said. "She knows a ton of stuff about a 
lot of students- she's always listening. Her focus is on the students... she's like an angel."

There is a phrase tucked away in the ninth verse offealm 36 which says, "In your 
light we see light." By itself, of course, light is invisible; a^ yet everything is invisible 
until light strikes it. So it is with God: we can't see God, an® yet, it is only "in his light" 
that we come to truly see and understand ourselves and the world around us. 

Olivet is a place of learning; thus, we seek the light. We want to know and to 
understand the arts and sciences. We look for light to help us grasp the truth of 
history and culture. We hope to illuminate the disciplines of psychology and busi- 
ness and nursing and computer science and theology and engineering and so on. 
In the words of the Psalmist, "In your light we see light." 

Light is one of the most pervasive metaphors in Scripture. The Apostle John, 
speaking of Jesus, declared: "The true light that gives light to every person was 
coming into the world. In him was life and that life was the light of men." It is God 
who illuminates our life and we are, therefore, to walk in the light as he is the light. 

This year's theme for the Aurora is "Shine" using Matthew 5:14-16 (NIV) which 

"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do 
people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it 
gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before oth- 
ers, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." 

This is a call to each of us as followers of Christ- we are to let our lights shine. The 
good news is that we can be beacons of light in a variety of ways: what we say, how 
we live, what we value and the way we do our work. These are all avenues through 
which the light of Christ penetrates the darkness around us. ^ 

As students at Olivet Nazarene University, you represent the dawn of a new ^ 

generation. My prayer for you is that wherever life takes you and through whatever (~ 

vocation you choose that you would be a torch bearer, taking the light with you as ^^^ 

you go. I

The Hub, a student-led marketing team that advertises school events to the student body, is the 
center of information on campus. "I like to think of us as the Breakfast Hub because it's a variety of 
different students being locked in a room and not being able to come out until we come up with some- 
thing creative," said Creative Director Cameron Carpenter. 

Instead of receiving information through a mass email blast, students now have access to what 
is happening on campus through the "Life at Olivet" Facebook page, Youtube videos, and the Tiger 
Text, which is passed out after chapel. "We want to get important information out to the campus in the 
most memorable, creative, and effective way possible," Carpenter explained. 

Leader Brent Brooks has been working with the Office of Student Development on the birth of 
The Hub for the past year. "Our name. The Hub, comes from the fact that our goal is to try to consoli- 
date all the student information into as few channels as possible," explained Brooks. As the group is 
just a newborn, the details haven't been completely worked out yet. 

"We are just doing our best with what we have. We rely on feedback from the students to see 
if we are doing something right or wrong. There's no precedent for what we're doing," Brooks said. 
"We're working on writing formal procedures so we can maybe pass on the torch eventually." 
Along with Brooks and Carpenter, the Hub team includes Kayla Rolling, who oversees content, Jordan 
Hansen as video editor, and Jesse Dillman as graphic designer. 

"We've definitely become a big family," Carpenter said. "Anytime I have a job where I can look 
back at my work and laugh harder every time a project is replayed, I consider it a job well done." High- 
lights of their work have included the boardroom videos and the remake of the intro to the old television 
show Recess. 

"When we did our first boardroom video, we forgot about an event that we needed to advertise 
for, which was for the football game," said Brooks. "Right at the moment that we remembered, we saw 
a football player walking by. So Smitty went out there and yelled at him to come over, and brought him 
in. We gave him a pizza box and told him to come into the meeting and say, 'Hey, are you guys coming 
to the football game?' and leave. And he became people's favorite character!" 

The Hub not only allows hilarious and creative people to share their genius with the student 
body, but performs an important function as well by disseminating information. "It's really a "win-win" 
for everyone," Carpenter said. "For the most part, we've gotten nothing but positive feedback, and 
more people seem to be getting involved with student life. I'm very excited to see the success contin- 
ue, and I think the students are, too."

At the beginning of another academic year, we all experienced many new changes such as class schedules, living 
environments, and even new friends. We waited in longer lines at Ludwig, dealt with slower Internet, and fought for parking 
spaces and seats in the cafeteria. But the start of this year symbolized more to each individual class. 

For the Freshmen the first week at Olivet is all about connections. They spent their time connecting with their floor 
mates, resident assistant, fellow classmates, and most importantly, college life through programs such as JumpStart and 
Freshmen Connections. As sophomores entered their second year, the first week is all about remembering, such as what it 
was like to be a freshman as you see lines of cars moving into inner campus. It is also about remembering where buildings 
and classrooms are and how much time you need to spend on that dreaded thing called homework. The start of another 
year reminds the junior class to stay focused. It also means being focused on your major, because for many, classes are 
moving away from general education requirements and becoming centralized on your future career. Most importantly, it is 
about re-focusing on your spiritual life and centering yourself with God in the middle of everything. When asked what the 
start of her junior year of college means to her, Joy MacDonald stated, "It's kind of scary because you realize you are half 
way done and you don't want to grow up just yet." However, for most juniors staying focused on things from the start helped 
to take some fears away. 

For seniors, the first week of their last year in college is about looking ahead. It's holding your head high and finish- 
ing out the year strong. Dr. Bowling addressed the senior class by asking them to "finish well," academically, socially, and 
emotionally by letting the disappointing moments go. Dr. Bowling also urged them to "give back to God and cherish the good 
moments in your Olivet experience." But most importantly, he encouraged the senior class to finish strong spiritually and 
graduate from ONU with a personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. For all Olivetians, the first week was about getting back 
into the groove of things, starting a fresh year focused on God and doing the work of His kingdom and letting our light shine 
for Him.

There was a buzz across the Weber lawn as students and faculty began mingling, making introductions, and 
creating new relationships. The annual block party is a great opportunity to meet new people and reunite with old friends. 
It's a great way to kick off the first weekend event and is open to the entire Olivet community. There were plenty of fun 
activities for students to enjoy such as an obstacle course, a rock climbing wall, and a bungee ride. Students snacked on 
a variety of foods provided by Sodexo, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Domino's Pizza. 

Throughout the night, students had opportunities to take photos with ONU's mascot Toby the Tiger, Woody Webb, 
Dr. Jay Martinson, David Van Heemst (most commonly known around Olivet as "DVH"), and of course Dr. Bowling. Dr. 
Jay enjoyed being in photos with his students and commented that with all the attention he was getting he "felt like Mick- 
ey Mouse at Disney!" 

For some, dancing at Olivet may seem taboo, but not for this year's block party! Junior Elizabeth Kuhns was 
particularly excited about this new opportunity. The atmosphere was charged with energy starting with the crowd moving 
their feet to the popular line dance, the "Cupid Shuffle." This provided a segue for many students to stay and follow junior 
Amy Dillman as she led the crowd in a high energy Zumba workout. This became the highlight of the evening for Kuhns, 
who said, "I think they should do Zumba every year!" Dillman emphasized that, "Zumba is a great way to build community 
because it brings so much joy to people. I appreciate Olivet giving this new form of dance a chance!"

ONU students started celebrating "the most wonderful time of the year" by connpeting against one another in the 
much anticipated Ollies Follies sports and wacky games. The classes brought on their holiday and team spirit with this 
year's theme of "Olliedays." The seniors represented Christmas, juniors Valentine's Day, sophomores Fourth of July, and 
freshmen Thanksgiving. On Saturday, September 3, the athletic competitions began bright and early with sunny skies and 
sweltering temperatures of 95+ degrees. Students took extra precautions by drinking lots of water and sitting out during 
some games to regain their strength. The senior class took the lead in sports by winning ultimate frisbee, softball, and flag 
football. One of the closest games of the day was flag football. The seniors played against the sophomores and were tied 
for nearly half of the game. Afterward, senior Dante Payne said, "It was a neck and neck battle of the finest. I thought the 
game was going to go into overtime, but we held in there and won. It felt good to finally be flag football champions." The 
juniors came out on top in dodgeball and the sophomores soared like "fireworks" in volleyball, taking the senior class to 
three very close and intense games. 

After the excessive heat a huge storm blew in, postponing the wacky games until Sunday evening. There was a 
dramatic drop in temperature but it did not hinder the number of attendees in the slightest. The Warming House bleachers 
were overflowing with students showing their class pride and team spirit. Seniors showed their strength by winning tug-of- 
war and tying the juniors in the Wheel Barrow Bobbing race. The juniors came away with first place wins in speed eating 
and the new Chugging Challenge. This game involved chugging a gallon of tea, one liter of root beer, and a quart of half 
and half. The seniors were no match in the highly acclaimed inner tube game, rounding up an astounding 60 inner tubes. 
They were so far ahead in the last round that every senior brought their tubes to the freshmen to help them come in sec- 
ond place, all while chanting the traditional "We love freshmen!" cheer. No matter the results, Ollies Follies proved once 
again to be an Olivet "holiday" that everyone enjoyed.

As with most holidays, Ollies Follies is a very hectic time of year, with all the rushing around to finish the show on 
time while balancing the start of the year and staying on top of homework. Despite the late nights and stress, the shows 
put on by each class come together and make Ollies Follies one of the most anticipated events of the school year. The 
freshmen class was very thankful this year to be at Olivet and to be accepted by the upperclassmen. With the holiday of 
Thanksgiving, they demonstrated their ability to fit in on campus and to learn the ways of their founding fathers. When 
asked of the freshmen class's first attempt at Ollies Follies, Michael Poff stated, "We did well for freshmen and I was im- 
pressed by the whole show." Having some experience now under their belts, the sophomores put together an all Ameri- 
can Fourth of July celebration. With appearances by Captain America and Miss USA their portion of the show consisted 
American classics such as country music, red, white and blue, confetti, parades and of course fireworks. 

The juniors were falling in love and hoping for the "ring by spring," with their early Valentine's Day Celebration. 
Love wasn't easy to come by this year with Cupid Junior hitting the wrong couples with arrows; it was up to the juniors 
to put the perfect couples back together. Their show included lovers from movies such as "The Notebook" and "Harry 
Potter." Despite the loving feelings, Valentines Day came in second place. 

With three years of experience and a strong desire to be Ollies Follies champions, the seniors showed their 
Christmas spirit in this year's variety show. Santa Claus to everyone's enjoyment was played by Dr. Bowling, who 
showed the seniors that the true meaning of Ollies Follies is not winning, but team spirit. The seniors' show consisted of 
classic Christmas characters, such as nutcrackers, elves, Frosty the Snowman, a nativity scene, and even a "shufflin'" 
Grinch. The highlight of the show was when the seniors came out of presents in light-up suits. "When the lights went off 
in Chalfant, I wasn't sure what was going on. Once they came out in those suits, I was blown away! It was amazing!" ex- 
claimed senior spectator Cathy Schutt. At the end of the night, the senior class got just what they asked for Christmas; 
an Ollies Follies victory! 

This year's variety show put everyone in the holiday spirit, making us anxious for the holiday season and for Ol- 
lies Follies to come around once again.

Broadway Revue was the "Best of Times." Forty students came together to put on 18 Broadway numbers from a 
variety of musicals. The songs varied in styles ranging from dramitic to comical and the performers did everything from 
dancing to singing with puppets. Considering that Broadway Reuve was put together in only two weeks and led by stu- 
dent directors, the show was a great success. 

"My favorite number was '21 Guns' because it demonstrated that sometimes simple is best." At least, that is the 
opinion of junior Samantha Starner. "Though the students simply stood in place while singing, the way the vocal harmo- 
nies blended together blew everyone away." While "21 Guns" only involved people standing on stage, other numbers 
relied heavily on choreography. Further still were numbers where the company broke the fourth wall and interacted with 
the audience. At the end of "Aquarias" the entire cast slowly danced off the stage and out of Kresge, bringing the first act 
to a dramactic conclusion. 

"All these songs came together to form a tale, revolving around the finale. The Best of Times' from La Cage aux 
Folles. Right now is the best of times," said Abby Lalumendre. "Whenever your now is, whatever you are doing, this is 
the best of times. Like one of our directors, Emily Dillard said, we will never do that exact show with that exact cast ever 
again. So we needed to make it as good as we could and just enjoy the time we were having while we were having it."

Coronation has been a tradition at Olivet since the 1950s, 
crowning one girl from the senior class as Homecoming Queen. 
Their peers, first selecting the top ten and then narrowing down 
the contestants to five, vote for candidates who are involved on 
campus, exhibit leadership, and academic success, and live a life 
for Christ. The night was filled with the court's biographies, record- 
ings from the women's parents, special music, as well as question 
and answer session for each girl. But at the end of the night, only 
one was chosen to represent Olivet as the 2011 Homecoming 
Queen; this extraordinary woman was Sheibi Miller. 

When asked about the moment she was crowned Homecoming 
Queen, Miller stated, "I didn't know what to do. I think I just froze 
and smiled and hoped that I didn't have anything in my teeth. I 
remember asking Annie Bell (Homecoming Queen for 2010) what 
to do and where to go because I couldn't remember what they 
said to do." 

The best part of the event for Miller was spending time with her 
mother and the other court members. "They are all such a great 
group of friends and there was never a dull moment with them." 
Members of the Homecoming Court included Jana Pierce, Angela 
Rivas, Karyn Nichols, Sarah Sinn, Bryan Stevens, Austin Hill, Mi- 
chael Bishop, Kyle Lowery and Mitch Johnson. 

After spending four years here, Sheibi realizes just how quickly 
college can fly by. She urged the students at ONU to, "Make the 
most of your college experience because it is one you will never 
forget. Trust the Lord because He is your rock. Most of all have 
fun and spread as much love and joy as you can, and enjoy the 
people that you are surrounded by."

The 2011 Homecoming was a nostalgic experience for many alumni as they were able to catch up with old friends 
and beloved faculty members and relive old memories while revisiting the campus. For current students, Homecoming 
was full of pancakes, concerts, and a chance to spend time with family members who graduated from Olivet. Sophomore 
Hannah Rowen enjoyed watching the campus get ready for its festivities and stated, "I love how campus is so decorated 
for Homecoming, and everything gets very exciting!" Decorating campus was just the start of a great weekend filled with 
reuniting, singing, and laughter. 

The Homecoming festivities began with coronation where senior Sheibi Miller was crowned Homecoming Queen. 
On Thursday the Alumni served the students at a pancake feast that was very successful; it was such a hit that the line 
was out the door and into the quad. 

ONU's Tigers participated in athletic events during Homecoming week, where current students and alumni gath- 
ered together to cheer on the purple and gold. The women's basketball team won their game with a score of 92-91 
against Davenport University and the football team beat Mckendree University 17-13, making for a successful weekend. 

Throughout the weekend there were several other events to participate in such as the biology open house, the fall 
play, class reunions and dinners, and a 5k run. The weekend came to an end with the Bill Gaither Vocal Band perform- 
ing in the Centennial Chapel to a sold out crowd. Olivet students ihvolved in Gospel, Orpheus, Chrysalis, and Testament 
choirs as well as the Concert singers got the opportunity of a lifetime to perform on stage with the Gaithers. 

While the events had to come to an end, the memories of this year's Homecoming will forever live on.

On Halloween night, hundreds of Olivet students came to Chalfant Hall for the Candy Costume Fest 
dressed in a variety of creative disguises. Caramel apples, hot apple cider, flavored popcorn, and endless 
amunts of candy were provided for students enjoy throughout the evening. Some of the top costumes this year 
were Snow White and the seven dwarfs, a public safety officer and a parking ticket, Iron Man, and the cast of 
Despicable Me. Students who attended could enter the contest in categories such as individual, pairs, a me- 
dium group, and a large group of 14 people and up. The overall winner of the Candy Costume Fest was sopho- 
more Logan Smith, whose Iron Man costume stole the show and the audience's attention. 

Sophomores Annie Brandes and Leah Livingston were both dressed as members of the movie Despi- 
cable Me which won the large group category. The group of friends starting thinking of costume ideas after last 
year's Candy Costume Fest, and they finally decided about dressing up as the characters from Despicable 
Me at a Cross Country practice. "Everyone started picking out their favorite character," said Brandes. "A lot of 
people wanted to be minions, but it worked because you can have as many minions as you need," she said. 
The costumes took about an hour and a half to put together the night of the candy costume fest. Livingston 
commented, "There were a lot of cheers as we walked across the stage," punctuated by camera flashes. De- 
spite being somewhat nervous, the hard work paid off as they won the large group category and immortalized 
themselves in costume fame.

Based off true events that occurred in at the Radium Dial Factory during the 1920s and 1930s in Ottawa, IL, the play 
"These Shining Lives" follows four young women who forever changed the workplace for women through their courage and 

Jenny Ward, Kristina Kirkham, Hannah Williams, and Courtney Weihman told the story of how these women stood up 
for themselves after their health and spirit were endangered from working in the radium factory. All the women became ver> 
sick from radium poisoning, even though the factory was telling them that what they were doing was completely safe. 

Sophomore David Timm who played Tom Donohue said, "The story was just so impactful to the audience, and when yoi 
are up there on the stage, you can feel the mood in the room change based on what they are experiencing. It really brings 
the story to life for me. It's like the audience is a mirror, and everything that I experience they experience and it comes back 
to me while I'm acting and sensing their emotion. The theatre is really a powerful thing." 

The cast really brought the emotion within the story out, Jenny Ward explained; "One of the reasons the play was so 
powerful was because of the extremely talented cast. We all really bonded and recognized the importance of this story and 
worked incredibly hard to perform the show to the best of our abilities."

The Music Department performed the annual Messiah 
concert for the 76'^ time this Christmas to l<icl< off the Advent 
season, and the Centennial Chapel was packed. 

Dr. McMullian, a music veteran, has insight from years 
of experience. "I've played the Hallelujah Chorus at least 50 
times in my career, but every time it seems cool," he said. 
"From start to finish it's so familiar, yet it seems creative and 
fresh every time. It's such a classic piece." 

Like a comfortable blanket, each year the Messiah brings 
back rich understanding and appreciation for the birth and life 
of Jesus. "Listening to Handel's Messiah always reminds me 
not just of the incarnation, but of the gospel narrative in its en- 
tirety," said Orpheus choir member Andrew Carr. "What's even 
better is that by performing the Messiah, I have the opportuni- 
ty to share the story of Jesus with others in a way that I know 
positively impacts their holidays and speaks to their souls." 

The music was brought to life by various musical groups 
such as Testament men's choir. Chrysalis women's choir, 
Orpheus, and the university orchestra. Also featured were a 
myriad of solo performances. "It was nerve-wracking at first," 
said soloist Lillian Guenseth, "but it's like you're telling a story 
to people." She appreciates the rich past of the piece. "It was 
neat to be in that bit of history; it is an honor." 

As a senior, Owen Blough has appreciated revisiting the 
Messiah each year, like a new conversation with an old friend. 
"I always enjoy going to Messiah, as it is a wonderful time of 
inspiration and remembering that Christmas isn't just about 
Jesus's coming, but also why He came; to bring the Kingdom 
of God."

On Sunday, December 11th, Ludwig was transformed into a Winter Wonderland complete with 
chocolate fondue, a live band, and a roving Santa Glaus. Each class council adopted and transformed 
a section of Ludwig to radiate holiday cheer. Called The Twelve Days of Christmas, this inaugural party 
took the place of the Christmas Banquet and gave students a chance to relax before finals began. 

The theme emerged as twelve different activities were thought up. Highlights of the event includ- 
ed a team gingerbread house building competition (won by a house that was purportedly a mini-Olivet), 
a photo booth with holiday costumes, Christmas movies, dance video games, bingo, an ugly sweater 
contest, and crafts and card decorating.

When asked what he was going to do after winning IVlr. ONU, Captain 
Canada (alias Junior Jeremy Height) said that he was "going to Niagara 
Falls! It is the Disney world of Canada!" This year's theme was Unsuper 
Heroes, and there were plenty of contestants who put up a fair fight for 
the title. Representing the class of 2012 were seniors Jacob Naldi and 
Michael Bishop. Two juniors; the winner, Captain Canada, and Matt Wil- 
son. Sophomores Kyle Miller and Tyler Abraham. Finally, representing 
the freshmen were Derek Schwartz and Brandon Klemm. 

All of the contestants competed in the same categohes, but with 
different skills. However, the hardest for Captain Canada was, "Learn- 
ing the dance moves. Being a full-blooded Nazarene makes it hard to 
dance." Height also commented that his favorite behind-the-scenes mo- 
ments were, "Some of the dance moves us guys came up with, though it 
took almost dropping a few guys on their heads to perfect them. Us guys 
trying to learn how to dance was just hilarious all around." 

However, Mr. ONU is not just about winning the title. "The best part 
of Mr. ONU was getting to meet and compete with some awesome guys. 
I made a lot of friends out of this event. They made the whole competi- 
tion hilarious and fun," said Height. In fact, winning was not even what 
Height expected at the end of the competition. Height reflected that, "I 
was very shocked, I did not immediately process the fact that I had won 
since they said Captain Canada instead of Jeremy, so I started clapping 
until I realized they meant me. It was awesome. I felt honored to win the 
title and sword of Mr. ONU. "

54 members of the senior class were recognized by the Who's Who Among Students 
program. These students were part of a select group of students from more than 2,842 
schools in all 50 states and the District of Columbia to accept this prestigious award. 

Olivet's campus nominating committee made up of representatives from the faculty, 
administration and student body selected and nominated the recipient for this award. 
Criteria for this selection included grade point average, participation and leadership in 
school activities, community involvement and leadership ability. 

"These selected individuals exemplify the highest Christian ideals, strong academic 
achievement and a commitment to service," said Woody Webb, Vice President for Stu- 
dent Development. "Their influence both in and outside the classroom is being recog- 
nized by their peers as well as by the Olivet faculty and staff."

The spring musical, "Once Upon a Mattress" was a comedy based off of the classic "Princess and the Pea." 

"The Queen will not let anyone in the kingdom get married until her son, Prince Dauntless, finds a princess 
to marry," said Emily Dillard, Green Room President. "The Queen doesn't like any of the princesses, so she 
gives them ridiculous tests which they all fail. Finally, this very outgoing and unladylike princess comes." 

The couple falls in love, but the girl, Winnifred, is still tested by the Queen, who must not fall asleep due to 
the pea under her mattress. The whole cast came together to help Winnifred pass the Queen's standards in 
order to marry her love. "I'm a lady-in-waiting who is a part of the chorus in the show," said freshman Cassan- 
dra Petrie. "Me and everyone else in the cast help the story move along by supporting Prince Dauntless in his 
search for a princess, dancing our socks off, and helping the Princess Winifred "pass her test." 

The personalities of the characters also helped make the tale funnier. The people were all exaggerated and 
were told to behave cartoonlike. "I think the audience was charmed by the dialogue's witty humor, the absurdity 
of each character, and the music itself," said Petrie.

J. Martinson. Who comes to mind? Most likely, the first person you think of is Dr. Jay Martinson, 
popular Chair of the Department of Communication. However, behind every great man there's a great 
woman, and Dr. Jay is no exception. 

"Luckily, he's a popular one," said Jeanette Martinson, the less prominent half of J. Martinson. " 
think it would be terrible, if we'd be sitting here and hear someone behind us like, 'What a jerk'! That 
would be awful." She laughed, clearly at ease with her husband's reputation. 
Mrs. Martinson lives her life with spunky flair. With a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and 
a Master's in Professional Counseling, her calling is to love people. "I really, really like counseling," 
she said. "Sitting one on one is my absolute favorite thing to do." Currently an adjunct professor for 
the psychology department, she has been teaching in the master's program for several years, rather 
than maintaining her own private practice. "I feel like, right now, I have about thirty clients- and I have 
none!" she said with a laugh. "But I watch the students' [counseling] tapes, and I keep track of their 
people, so I feel like I have clients. Rather than sit with one person, I feel like I'm touching more lives 
this way, by teaching." 

This year, she's picked up additional undergraduate courses to fill in the gaps in the department 
She appreciates the enthusiasm to learn that the younger students generate in class. "I miss them 
when I'm not with them. They give me a fresh outlook!" she said. Even more than she loves students, 
however, Jeanette Martinson loves her family. 

"You can pick the most important thing to you, and devote your life to it," she explained. Despite 
the pressure that comes from living and working in academia, she's not too worried about becoming 
another Dr. J. Martinson. "My full time things are mom and grandma, and I teach on the side, rather 
than being a Ph.D. with kids on the side," she said. 

It hasn't always been that way, though. "It used to really intrigue me- 1 wanted that title," she sale 
"A lot of times in our marriage I would feel like, I know he's got the Ph.D., but I'm just as smart as him 
She went through a particularly rough time while they were at the University of Illinois, her at home with 
the baby and him studying for his Ph.D. "I think my self-esteem really suffered there. I would have beet 
really tempted to get it just to say I did it." She laughed. "Jay would come home and have these stud 
ies and stuff, and I read Cat in the Hat- in fact, I memorized it!" 

Now, however, she realizes that the credential is just that- a written validation. Choosing to focus I 
on her family has given her a much deeper sense of fulfillment, as evidenced by the walking, breathinc r 
proof that frequently follows her around campus. "That's just a different investment," she said. "So he 
can be Dr. and I'll be Gigi- and that's okay." 

A few years ago, Jeanette discovered what she called a "big empty spot" in herself. Although 
she had the opportunity to pursue another degree, she had another idea. "We were on this whale 
watch, and I saw this little Chinese girl, and I said 'Oh, adoption- that's what I always wanted to and 
didn't do!' And my daughter Rachel said, 'Why don't you just do it then?'" A couple years later, their 
family grew by one as they adopted a little girl from China, Lucy. 

Martinson's family oriented life hasn't detracted from her professional success. She's worked 
with chronically mentally ill adults, run a successful private practice, and taught classes. In fact-as she| 
mentioned with a grin- she's teaching one more class than her husband during the spring semester. 

Jeanette Martinson knows what has her heart: family. "You'll get what is the most important thing 
to you, but you may not get the second most important- so make sure you get most important thing 
straight," she said. "What I desired the most was just the kids growing up. I think finally, maybe at this 
age I've decided I'm pretty content- I've done what I really wanted to in life."

What does one do during a summer of mowing lawns to avoid going crazy? James Smit, a 
senior, explained about one of his past summer jobs, "When I mowed lawns, it was such a mind 
numbing job that I would spend all day thinking- if I found a lottery ticket and I won a million dol- 
lars, what would I do? I'd love to go to the big national parks and travel to see all fifty states." 

A nature-lover at heart, James will be graduating with a degree in biology "What I ideally 
want to do is ecosystem management, managing a certain area so that you can get the most pro- 
ductivity sustain ability, and still let it be used by humans," he said. He enjoys activities that let hii 
explore and relish the outdoors, such as fishing and mountain biking, which flesh out his intellec- 
tual understanding of the environment with raw natural beauty. 

James' interest in biology has led him to the position of president of Biophilic, the biology 
club. "I never really had envisioned myself as being the president," he said with a laugh. "When j 
you're a freshman, you don't want to be in biology club, you're like- 'this is lame!' Then you realizq 
that you become friends with the people in your major, and you know everyone, and it's fun to go \) 
that stuff. You get advice and you hang out with professors." James appreciates the real world an 
practical experience the role has given him in managing a budget and a group of people. 

The last four years have seen other changes within James, too. Starting out his first year 
more inclined to bend the rules than to uphold them, he's spent the last three as a Resident Assis 
tant. "As a freshman or a sophomore you don't really appreciate what we have here. As I've got- 
ten a little bit older I've come to appreciate it more, and enjoy some of the things that maybe whei 
you're younger you don't enjoy, you just see as stifling or oppressive," James said. "You realize 
the rules really are not a big deal." Recognizing that his friends who attended state schools were 
thrown into a raucous atmosphere that they were unprepared for, he appreciates the structure tha 
Olivet's rules create. "I'm so thankful for these four years I've had to assess the person I want to 
be," he said. 

Olivet's smaller, more intimate community also appeals to him. "The thing I like the most is 
the people that I've met here, that you really get to know and become close friends with by learnirj 
their stories," he said. James relates how his RA from his freshman year now works with a church 
in Colorado, and he just sent a student from the youth group to Olivet. The student ended up on 
James' floor in Nesbitt. "It's the stories, the memories, and the connections," he explained. ! 

One particular memory from college demonstrates James' goofy personality. "I like having c| 
mustache, sometimes," he said. "I've had a mustache sometime during every year of college, anc 
I usually grow one in the summer." However, this summer looms slightly more ominously than the 
past ones, as James, along with the rest of the senior class, face the next phase of life. 
"I think you can learn something from everyone. I've found that more as I go through school, not 
to ever shut anything out," James explained. "There's something you can learn from everyone anc 
every situation." Armed with that attitude, his mustache, lawn-moving experience, and Biology 
degree, how could he fail?

Not many people have experienced being in the minority in the way that Tabitha Eckert has. When she was only 
two, her parents moved to Niger, a country in West Africa, as missionaries. Despite trying their best to emulate the 
people they were living with, they were the first white family to live in the town of Dakoro. "When I was small, the 
kids thought I was painted; they'd never seen a white kid before. So they'd kick me and pinch me to see if I'd cry, 
because they weren't sure if I was real," Tabitha recounted. 

Since the Fulani people, the tribe that they were focused on ministering to, are nomadic, the family settled in the 
closest town, where her mom stayed at home teaching the kids while her dad traveled, sometimes for a few weeks 
at a time. The oldest of seven siblings, Tabitha grew up close to the four brothers born after her, since they were the 
only other English- speaking kids in town. 

She grew up feeling outraged at the cruelty of the way the other kids in the village treated them. "They would 
come and sit on the wall around our house- kind of like an amphitheater or something- and while we played they'd 
be talking and commenting to each other on what we were doing. For a while they threw rocks, which was really 
bad because we were afraid to go out of the house. Then they started shooting rubber bands... I shot them back," 
she explained with a slight smile. "I was kind of a bad kid." However, Tabitha reached a turning point around the 
age of thirteen. As the Islamic culture began to make more sense, she realized that the people who were mistreat- 
ing her had no concept of a loving God. Rather than hold them to a standard of behavior that they didn't even 
know existed, she decided to demonstrate what she longed for. "I realized I'd have to get out there and get on their 
level so they can see that there's a different way to be human. That was when I started learning their language and 
began to know the people in my town," she said. Eventually she became so fluent in Hausa, the ubiquitous national 
language, that she worked as a translator in a hospital. 

For someone who had been interested in medicine since a young age, working in the hospital was a special 
treat. "Anywhere the doctor went, I went," she said. "I got to see way more than most non-medical personnel get to 
see." Tabitha traces her desire to serve in medicine to an encounter she had at age four with a little Fulani girl who 
had been bitten by a snake. She received poor medical treatment and suffered through the gangrene before the 
her leg was amputated. "I looked at her eyes, and the only way I can describe them is someone who's been in a 
horror movie or something," she remembered. "I'm going into medicine because I cannot get away from the fact 
that there are children all over the world who should not have to have that look in their eyes." 

When Tabitha was eighteen, her parents moved back to the United States so she could go to college. After 
a year spent "learning to be an American, "she enrolled at Trinity International University in Chicago. Having fi- 
nally acclimated herself to African culture, it was a tough transition for her. "I didn't understand American slang. 
One time, we were talking about pirate treasure, and I started referring to it as booty- everyone cracked up every 
time I said something." Tabitha found herself feeling superior to her classmates, preferring to spend time with her 
family. She explained, "My response to the transition was this Christian narcissism, where you convince yourself 
that God has somehow made you special. At the end of that year God broke through a lot of things for me. He was 
like, 'You are not special because of yourself, you are only special because you know me, and you need to know 
other people.'" Feeling led to apply for a position as an RA, Tabitha spent the next year building relationships with 
people and forming genuine friendships. She felt God calling her to nursing at the end of her sophomore year, and 
consequently transferred to Olivet. A senior this year, she has a dream of working with orphans or children who 
have been hurt in life. 

"I'm just excited to live," Tabitha said. "I used to be so afraid of life; I was so afraid of everything because I felt 
like I had to earn God, and I had to earn my right to be recognized by other people. I think this whole process of 
coming to know that God wants to know us- and that's the only thing that makes us important- has really freed me 
to enjoy living."

Like a scrambled rubix cube with a multitude of faces and colors, Melinda Jones has many dif- 
ferent sides that all combine to make her unique. At first glance, one might notice her curly brown 
hair, room-brightening smile, or staple boots. It might be discernable from a book she's carrying or a 
conversation she's having, that she's dietetics major or passionate about helping others. However, a' 
cursory judgment is hardly sufficient. 

"I think that people get the wrong idea about me sometimes," she said, her slight southern twang 
leaking through. "There's just too much stuff put on outward appearance." Having grown up on a 
farm in southern Illinois, Melinda finds rural areas energizing. "In the summer, I just go outside- I'll be 
like, 'Mom and dad, if I'm not in my room, it's because I'm outside.' I will literally just take a sleeping 
bag outside in the field and just sleep!" she said. An avid hunter, fisher, dirt biker, cattle-raiser and : 
camper, Melinda considers life in the country much richer than life in the city. "The interaction and 
fellowship you have with outdoor activities is just so much more special," she said. 

Unafraid to strike out on her own, Melinda loves to hunt. "I do bow and shotgun," she said. "I 
haven't gotten a big trophy buck yet. I'm not one of those people who will just shoot every deer that ; 
walks by. If you don't let the bucks get bigger, you're never going to kill a big buck." However, as | 
every good hunter understands, there's more to it than just shooting a deer. "Even if you don't get a 
deer, I just love the experience," she said. "I love seeing the sunrise- it's just so peaceful; it's a great 
time to pray. Sometimes I bring my Bible out there." 

Melinda's spirit also shines through in her work. Interested particularly in diabetes education, she 
worked at a hospital this summer and found teaching the patients one on one about food choices 
incredibly rewarding. While she considered studying the nutrition side of feed for cattle, her heart is 
with people, "i love telling stories and making people laugh. I really do deeply care for others and 
what's going on in their lives and how I can help them or be an encouragement to them," she said. 
This is displayed particularly well through her volunteer work with Olivet's Prison Ministry, which | 
sends college students to visit inmates. "They're just people, you've got to remind yourself that," she^ 
explained. "Everyone makes mistakes." j 

Sometimes she wishes that same understanding attitude would be extended to her. "People teas' 
me about my boots all the time," she said. "I think people get this idea in their head that girls have | 
to be girly, and that doing these activities is more manly, but I don't think that's true at all. I think as 
women, we are called to be feminine, not girly." While she enjoys looking nice and getting cleaned 
up, Melinda feels that many girls miss out on life because they're so focused on impressing people 
outwardly "If you look at women in the Bible, most of them are not girly; they were tough women! But 
they were feminine and knew how to compose themselves in a way that was of womanly character. If 
you look at the Proverbs 31 woman, she was a tough gal! But she still look care of herself outwardly 
and she was a servant and possessed all the womanly qualities," Melinda explained. 

Adventurous and confident in herself, Melinda is the type of person who frees others from their 
self-consciousness just by being very much herself in deeper ways than a glance would reveal. "I 
don't really care what they say, because I'm not going to change. That's just the way I am," she said 
with a smile.

"If I had to pick a film score to compare myself with, it would probably be How to Train Your Drag- 
on' Ben Cherney said. "It's fun but chill and it's slightly spastic at times, but it's epic!" One of those 
rare humans with genuine artistic genius, Ben thinks in music. 

"I was really musical growing up. I just loved music, and I loved writing," he explained. "I could 
hear a lot of stuff just naturally." Unlike so many kids forced to take piano lessons, Ben mentions the 
music lessons he took growing up were more like punctuation to his natural gift. "I played by ear ba- 
sically since I could get up to a piano," he said. Currently studying music composition, piano, and 
voice, Ben's time at Olivet is helping him to train his talent. "There's a lot of stuff that I hear and I'd lovt 
to be able to do; it's just sort of like floating around in my head, like a really cool jazz piano- but I can' 
actually get that out of my hands yet," he said. 

Ben takes classes in a range of areas, including music theory, jazz, instruments, and musicianshipl 
which involves being able to read and produce what's en a page, or hear music and know how it look| 
written down. He particularly appreciates the professors at Olivet. "They're excellent at what they do, 
but they're also committed to Christ," he said. "That shows up in their classrooms. They care about 
each of the students on a very personal level." 

One of Ben's favorite things to experience in music is collective growth. "There's just that joy in put| 
ting together a group effort that comes out really well, and it just makes it that much better," he said. 
"There's a process of blending that happens where the music just gets tighter, to the point where at 
the end of the year, Dr. Bell will start some songs and walk away, because we're listening and acting 
as a group." He also loves the community that the Orpheus choir in particular creates, as sixty-six 
people from different backgrounds learn to create art together. "In the end we really are a family- it's 
so great," he said. 

Though Ben clearly belongs at Olivet, he didn't know it for a long time. After a fruitless search for 
a Christian liberal arts college with a music composition major, he finally surrendered his frustrations 
to God during his senior year of high school. "Like a week later, Olivet called me," he related. Thoughl 
he had never heard of the school, or even the Nazarene denomination. Olivet explained that they had 
received his test scores- which he never sent- and had a scholarship package to offer him. "I came ol 
my campus visit and fell in love with the campus," he said. "It was definitely a huge answer to prayer. '| 

While Ben is not certain what the future holds for him, he's trusting that God will continue to mold 
paths for him to take. In the meantime, he's preparing by making his impact at Olivet through singing 
in Orpheus, composing for events such as the Composer's Concert- which debuted a rock symphon; 
he wrote this year- and running sound for the Olivetians. "At this point, going through my degree and 
studying and doing my best in multiple areas," he explained, "is just preparing for whatever God will 
have for me."

For some people leadership is a learned quality. For others, like Scott Ellis, it is an inborn 
trait. A sophomore political science major, he recalls a debate in fifth grade during which his 
teacher told him he should be a politician. "It sparked an interest," he explained. Actively in- 
volved in campus life, Scott believes that college is what you make it. He participates in almost 
all intramural sports, and regularly attends Capitol Hill Gang meetings. "I go there and I usu- 
ally just shut my mouth and listen, because there are so many people who just know so much 
more than me who I want to learn from," he said. Scott relishes the opportunity to be surrounde 
by others also actively pursuing knowledge. He also is an avid supporter of the various sports 
teams on campus, which probably has something to do with his competitive streak. "I make 
competitions up in my head, like if somebody's walking behind me, and they're catching up, I' 
start walking faster," he said. 

Scott channels his competitiveness into cheering for both the men and women's basketball 
teams. "My cousin is on the girls' team, and my roommate is on the guys' team," he said. "I wis 
I could change students' spirit when it comes to sporting events." Scott finds it frustrating to 
watch nationally-ranked teams succeed, but go unnoticed by the student body To counteract 
that, he and his friends have formed a cheering section for the basketball games that they call 
"Ellis Island." Scott also has the job of being Toby the Tiger, which provides him with a front rovfl 
seat to many different games. "I just wish more students would show up and pack the gymna- 
sium, especially on Saturdays," he said. 

As Toby, Scott gets an opportunity to foster school spirit. "My RA last year taught me some 
dance moves, and I usually try to bring candy," he said. While jumping around in a tiger suit 
might seem easy, every job has its challenges. Temperature regulation inside Toby is difficult, 
and kids often get the wrong idea about him. "The women's soccer games are notorious for littl 
kids attacking Toby," Scott said. "I always try to make sure there's a second person with me, 
because there's normally just a pack of like eight kids that think you're a big toy. Kids will chas^' 
you the whole game, pull your tail and stuff." 

However, in Scott's mind that is a small price to pay if Toby helps students to get motivated. 
A natural at finding ways to get people engaged and involved, he especially enjoys new group 
in which no one knows one another. "I don't like when people are just lollygagging or not really 
knowing what to do, just sitting around," he said. "I try to go out of my way to talk to people, ge 
to know people, include people -whether or not that's an awkward moment for you," he joked. 

Scott enjoys professors that mirror his passion in their teaching style, explaining how many 
of his classes watch documentaries or have rousing discussions. "I'm at my best when I'm en- 
ergetic and having fun," he explained. Whether he's partying it up as a giant tiger or debating, 
Scott's inner drive bubbles over to inspire others to action.

If Hannah Taylor had a recipe for life, it would probably include a big dose of family, a 
few cups of love for kids, a sprinkling of poise, and a shake of vivacity. 

Coming from a family of teachers, Hannah is eagerly anticipating getting her degree in 
Elementary Education and a job teaching first grade someday. She has minors in Music ai^ 
Spanish, with hopes of one day teaching in the inner city. "I'd like to start an after school 
program for music so the kids have an outlet," Hannah said. While she was active in every 
thing from sports to show choir in high school, music filled a certain niche for her that noth 
ing else could. "I know kids in the inner city are looking for something productive to do, an 
it seems like a good way to express that," she said. 

Hannah is involved with Chrysalis, our all-women choir, and Proclamation Gospel Choir 
One of her favorite moments of this year was when gospel choir had the opportunity to sim 
with the Gaithers during Homecoming. "It was unbelievably real," she said, beaming. "I 
grew up listening to the Gaithers. We actually got to meet Bill Gaither. For being old, he is 
so great!" Music is more than just a personal experience for Hannah; it's a tool to unite ind 
viduals in creative expression. "I love kids and I love singing, and music just a good way t( 
bring people together," she said. Her biggest dream in life is to lead the African Children's 
Choir. When she was in fourth grade the group came to her church, and four of the little gi 
in the choir stayed at her house. "My heart has been with them ever since," Hannah relatei 
"That's why I chose music 

Hannah indeed has a big heart, and it is very much focused on God. Although she lov^ 
the faith challenge that the atmosphere at Olivet presents to her, she's leaning towards 
working in a public school someday. "I think I would be a bigger influence on a group that 
didn't know the Lord," she explained. "A big thing that I learned from my sister, who is alsd 
a teacher, is that they need to know that I'm different; they don't need to know why I'm diffq 
ent. When they ask me questions, then I'll tell them- and it'll be a good day. 

As a Resident Assistant on campus, she appreciates her friends who hold her account- 
able for having pure actions. "I went to a public high school, and I only had a few friends 
who were really solid in their faith," she said. "I feel like I am continually challenged at Olivj 
with it being a Christian school. My roommates challenge me all the time." 

Overall, Hannah brackets everything she does with love, whether it's her relationships 
with the residents in her apartment building, her friendship with her parents, or her service 
to kids. The secret ingredient in her recipe is also the source of her strength: "The Lord is 
faithful," she said with confidence, "and you don't have to be afraid."

Quite a few students at Olivet are familiar with the Shepherd Community Center in In- 
dianapolis. With a focus on inner-city ministry, Shepherd is frequented by religion students 
doing summer internships and MIA short term missions trips. None, however, know it quite 
as thoroughly as freshman Jenna Height. 

"My dad runs Shepherd, so we live like five minutes away," she explained. Having 
lived there since she was two, Jenna- along with her older brother Jeremy, also an Olivet 
student- has grown up helping out around the center, doing everything from gardening, 
cleaning, running the Christmas shop, and helping with the kids in the afterschool and day 
camp programs. 

Working towards a degree in Early Childhood Education, Jenna has a passion for kids. 
"I've just always grown up around them," she said. "I feel like I work better with kids- 1 
couldn't see myself as a middle school or high school teacher. Kids say whatever's on their! 
mind. They're just honest." She hopes to someday run or work with an orphanage, possibly! 

Being the daughter of a pastor has its perks. Jenna was raised surrounded not only by 
her parent's love, but an entire network of support. "It's a lot of fun because I get to go to 
different churches and I've met a lot of people," she explained. While she would sometimes 
get picked on for being the pastor's kid or feel pressured to have the Bible memorized, 
overall Jenna appreciates the experience. "I loved growing up in a Christian home; it was 
always nice to have my parent's support," she said. "I don't think I'd be where 1 am today 
without their support." 

An avid reader and shoe shopper, Jenna has found friends in the dorm that helped make 
the transition to college easier. "It was hard coming here, but having them makes it easier," 
she said. She's been considering, along with a few friends from back home who attend 
Olivet, getting back into a favorite activity: playing the steel drums. "They look like bowl 
shaped metal pans," she said. "There are six different types, and about fifteen or twenty 
people in a group play them." Jenna played the tenor drum for three years of high school 
with her church, traveling around to other churches and her high school. "We had gigs!" 
she said with a laugh. 

Jenna's background is beginning to bloom into a bountiful predilection to serve. "I love 
working with kids," she said, "so I think it would be so fun to run a good Christian environ- 
ment someday."

When Brody Stewart speaks, he is careful to say what he means. He searches for the right 
word for everything, and does a mental double check of any date or time that he offers, to en- 
sure its veracity. Precision is one of his gifts, and he's going to need it: he wants to be the per- 
son in charge of your heart. 

"In seventh grade I went and saw some procedures by a cardiologist, and ever since then 
I've wanted to do that," he explains. "I have always kind of been interested in being a doctor, s| 
they set up a procedure where I could go see it. They took this hollow wire, basically, and put i 
up and under the rib cage, into the vein, then sent a stint up on the wire, and then inflated and 
opened the vein, because it had collapsed." Among the different areas of cardiology, Brody 
hopes to specialize in open-heart surgery. 

For now, he's studying Biology. He discusses classes that would make Bachelor of Arts 
majors quake in their boots with a quiet confidence, mentioning organic chemistry like it's 
no big deal. He enjoys learning, and is looking forward to anatomy. "They dissect cadavers, 
which is pretty cool," he said. 

A freshman at Olivet this year, Brody is the type of kid who had a good eal of freedom at 
home having earned his parent's trust. "At home, my parents weren't really worried about me 
doing anything I wasn't supposed to, you just kind of knew where the boundaries were," he 
explained. He enjoys the social community at Olivet, however. "Everybody is easy to talk to," 
he said. He has the added benefit of a built in friend, too- his older brother, Caleb, who also 
attends ONU. Since Caleb is also a biology major, Brody has been able to get advice from his 
brother on various classes and teachers that await him in the future. 

Already quite an accomplished traveler, Brody can see himself working in Africa someday 
as a doctor and doing missions work. He attended Dr. Ben Carson's talk on campus this fall 
and particularly appreciated hearing about his medical service overseas. Brody has traveled t 
Florida and Canada on fishing trips. "My dad's relatives took us fishing for dolphin in Florida," 
he said. Dolphin? "Dolphin fish. It's called the Mahi Mahi; it's a colorful fish that tastes good." 

He has also been to England and Ireland. Brody's grandfather lived in Ireland for a few 
years, so he traveled there with his two brothers, his Dad, and his grandfather to visit old co- 
workers. "I'd like to travel more," he said. "All different places in Europe- Florence, Venice, 
Rome, and maybe the Amazon in South America. It's ridiculous and it's huge." There is now 
about that Brody's future travels will be experienced with the same meticulous attention, which 
he dedicates to every part of his life. i

"Go after a life of love as if your life depended on it - because it does. Give yourselves to the 
gifts God gives you. Most of all, try to proclaim his truth." (2 Corinthians 14:1) Jacob Schmidt lives out 
his life as if this verse were addressed specifically from Paul to him. A leader on campus in both Stu- 
dents in Free Enterprise (SIFE) and Lifesong, Jacob leaves a trail of cookie crumbs to his Creator. 

Dr. Lynda Allen, the business professor who advises SIFE, explained his secret: "I've seen evi- 
dence of Jacob's faith in all of his activities. Obviously it is evident as he leads worship, but beyond tha 
Jacob demonstrates his faith in his every day walk. He leads with Christ-likeness." 

Jacob credits Olivet for refining him over the past four years. "They recognize that not all the 
students are going to come in as solid Christians, but they want to make sure that these students hav 
the environment to become that way by the time they graduate," he said. "Coming into college, I rec 
ognized that you have to claim your faith for your own, and they definitely strengthened me in that. I 
believe that Olivet as a whole has prepared me to be different from what the world would expect me to 
be," he said. 

Graduating in May and starting a new job in July, Jacob is ready to embody his faith outside of 
the safe environment at Olivet. "I have a huge thing about not drinking alcohol," he explained, "and om 
of the things that my future boss mentioned was that as a part of the program I'm going to be in they'n 
going to teach you a few things to do to get to know clients better. One of them was navigating a wine 
list when you go and have dinner with clients." He looked serious as he continued, "It will be interestin 
to see just how things work out with that, and I make a stand for something I believe in." 

The challenge shouldn't come as much of a change for Jacob. Whether he's refereeing an intra- 
mural game, playing soccer, leading worship, or presenting for SIFE, Jacob's undertakings consistenti 
substantiate his convictions. "I'm excited to see where God leads Jacob," said Allen. "He is so smart 
and has so many diverse gifts. I know that the future holds amazing things for Jacob as he continues t 
follow after God." 

Jacob has used his gifts well at Olivet. As one of three directors for Lifesong, he is in charge of 
auditioning members, scheduling concerts for his group, and planning a retreat at the beginning of the 
year. It's a role that feels natural to him now, having been traveling with Lifesong since he was a fresh- 
man. "Most of the time when we travel, we stay at host homes," he said. "The best part is getting to || 
know those families- finding out about the history of their church as well as their own personal history.' 

His leadership ability is rivaled only by his piano skills, both of which he implements in Lifesong 
"I spotted Jacob playing the piano his freshman year and just loved his energy and spirit. He obviously 
loves what he does," said Jennifer McClellan, Spiritual Life Advisor. "He plays 'happy' and he worships 

Words like happy, sincere, and obvious are all cookie crumbs that follow Jacob. As McClellan 
summed it up, "I've seen evidence of his faith in his desire to serve Him with excellence."

If you have a twitter account, you have probably seen this hash tag most Wednesday and Thursday mornings on 1 
your friends' tweets about how much or how little they are enjoying the chapel service. This year's chapel speakers spoke 
on the theme of hands and habits, and emphasized how we as Christians need to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the 
world. A few of the most memorable speakers this year were Jon Acuff, Dr. Jim Diehl, and Tony Campolo. 

Jon Acuff had the entire crowd laughing with his story telling abilities about prayer "shot blocks" and the "deep V- 
neck syndrome." Moreover, he emphasized that we should do what God has shaped us to do rather than what is expectec 
from our parents, teachers, and peers. He also spoke about how we should not live our lives as "booty, God, booty," or 
slipping Jesus into our lives whenever it is convenient for us. He spent time calling the students to live their spiritual lives 
out for more than just Sunday morning church with a return to their secular lives the rest of the week. 

Dr. Jim Diehl shared a personal story of God's healing in his life and called attention to the fact that "God is greate 
than fill in the blank." Through the story of the prophet Elijah and the words of Dr. Diehl students were reminded that even 
though we say yes to God, bad things will still happen. But that is not the end of the story. God will provide a way out of 
those situations even if it does not sound as nice. Diehl stated that, "Where God wants you is the right place at the right 
time no matter where it is." 

Tony Campolo inspired us to live our lives completely and totally for Christ. He encouraged us to get jobs that will 
change the world. He persuaded us to be more than just "Christian up to a point." Using humorous stories as well as pow- 
erful inspirational tales, Campolo spoke and moved students towards doing more things that would live on after they are 
dead. Finally, a story of a homeless man inspired us to do to the least of these what we would do to Jesus. "If God gives 
you something good, you ought to share it with people," stated Campolo.

This fall, Dr. Corey MacPherson, Chaplain of Eastern Nazarene College, led revival with humor and great 
truth for all who participated. 

Though many students were shocked at the use of a U2 song during Chapel, MacPherson played "40" which 
spoke to our broken hearts that God is redemption and through Him we are given a new life and a new song 
to sing. MacPherson taught us that in doing the little things now, we are prepared to be faithful in our lives and 
ministries with the big things. We are to hold onto our dreams "even when the dream killers come and try to takel 
them away." 

Many students who had never heard the story of the jailer told in such a touching way were called to the alter 
to be set free of their captivity on Tuesday night. MacPherson then taught a "buckshot sermon" on Wednesday, 
giving some profound truths like finishing strong in order to leave things better than when you got to them and 
that God's will for our lives is to imitate Christ. 

Students left revived and refreshed, ready to face the semester ahead of them with the calling that God had 
placed on their heart, all while holding on to the most important point made by MacPherson, De A Nu, which 
means God is enough.

General Superintendent J.K. Warrick talks 
to the congregation about how we all have 
dreams through God, and even though 
Satan is the dream killer we need to hold on 
and not let go. (s) 

Students let the Holy Spirit work through 
them after an altar call by Warrick in the 
Tuesday night service, (s) 

General Superintendent Dr. J.K. Warrick led us this past win- 
ter in an amazing revival that changed the lives of many students. 

On Monday, we were reminded that we all have dreams, God 
is in control of our plans, and that we are called to have a Holy 
Confidence as we see in Philippians. On Tuesday, Dr. Warrick 
reminded us that we are "the furthest we will ever be from home," 
implying that we have to leave behind past comforts to follow Je- 
sus and yield our life to him. When we do this, Warrick states that 
we then "let the mind be in us that was in Christ Jesus." 

Wednesday's service ended with what we are to do after we 
are transformed by Jesus, which is to be disciples and pilgrims 
for Jesus. Dr. Warrick concluded with a final remark that "God 
makes all things work out for our good" as a reminder to follow 
the dreams we have in Jesus, turning to Him to be washed white 
as snow and then fulfilling His will in our lives. 

Students were able to relate to Dr. Warrick's language and 
break down walls and barriers that limited their spiritual life. Ju- 
nior Josh Sutton explained, "Revival this winter was really awe- 
some. Dr. J.K. Warhck was able to speak the truth to us and the 
Spirit really moved among the student body."

The Spiritual Life Council is a group of students that are involved with spiritual growth, ministries and 
events on campus. The Spiritual Life Council oversees the thirteen different ministries that our school sponsors. 
Each ministry meets weekly, putting on at least one big event per semester. The council members were selectee 
through an application and interview process. Each leader has a passion for what they are doing, as evidenced 
by the time and dedication put into their ministry. 

The Spiritual Life members assist in every way possible to pull of events, from 24 Hour Prayer, the Festi- 
val of Ministries and Give Your Life Away Week. 

Vice President for Spiritual Life Ian Morley has assisted all the ministries that the council oversees. He also lead 
meetings, and meets with the class Chaplains. "The Spiritual Life Council are the best people in the world and I 
respect each and every one of them," said Morley.

Best Buddies is a global volunteer movement which initiates 
friendships with people with both intellectual and development dis- 
abilities. There are two levels of involvement within Best Buddies. A 
college buddy commits to a one-on-one friendship, which involves a 
monthly visit and weekly contact. An associate buddy floats around at 
group events and socializes with all the buddies. 

"Best Buddies gives our buddies the opportunity to interact with 
individuals and participate in activities that they might not have been 
able to be a part of if not for this ministry," explained leader Emma 
Reutter. Some highlights from this year were the Halloween party, 
"Buddy Ball" Christmas party, bowling, Valentine's Day party, and 
friendship walk. The group aims to have about one event each month. 

"The joy expressed on their faces every time we see them is by 
far what I find most enjoyable about Best Buddies," said Reutter.

Compassionate Ministries is for students wino want to get involved in ministry, but cannot find time to go 
D weekly meetings and events. The purpose of Compassionate Ministries is to show God's love through acts 
f service and show others that God cares about them. The group does service projects in the community, runs 
od drives, and participates in the "Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat program." The group is involved in larger 
rejects such as the Crop Walk and Pro Life Walk, events that raise money for good causes. 

The favorite project was the "Trick or Treat So Others Can Eat," where students went out into the com- 
lunity and collected canned foods throughout the local neighborhoods on Halloween. The food they collected

Proverbs 19:17 says, "He who is kind to tine poor lends to tiie Lord, 
and He will reward him for what he has done" (NIV). Disciplers is a ministry 
group on campus that travels to Hopkins Park, IL, twice a week to assist 
the Bible Witness Camp with their AWANA program. Danielle Bolander 
reminds students, "This area is one of the poorest in the country, and there 
is a community that is hurting and could use our help." 

Disciplers ministers to both older and younger children. There are 
kids from kindergarten through 8* grade attending the AWANA program 
"The Bible Witness Camp is a safe place in a world of fear and violence 
where these kids can come. We teach them about God and the Bible and 
give them a chance to learn things that may be out of their reach other- 
wise. These children just need some love and support that many of them 
do not find at home," states Bolander. 

The purpose of Disciplers is to ultimately spread God's love and the 
gospel to the children in Hopkins Park. Bolander affirms that those in- 
volved strive to be good role models for these kids and to create caring 
relationships with young students. Disciplers is a ministry that makes a 
positive impact on young students. Serving these children is a great joy to 
all involved.

Hanging out with the elderly at Provena Our Lady of Victory Senior Living Center may not be everyone's idea of a 
/ay to have fun in Bourbonnais, but a select group of students in the Evangels ministry think that it is actually a great 
lime. "It's an awesome opportunity to minister to an under-served group of people," said senior Martha Harrouff. "Each 
lind every time I go, I am blessed beyond words at the joy I see on their faces when they remember that it is the day 
|hey get to see us." 

Providing joy for the residents is a significant aspect for all of the students involved, but they also receive quite a 
lew joyful moments themselves. "The mission of Evangels is to bring a light into a dark place; to bring joy in to the many 
Ivonderful lives at the nursing home. What's amazing is that although we are ministering to the residents, they teach us 
|iO much!" stated senior Elizabeth White. 

White emphasized that her reason to participate in Evangels is because, "It is important that none of God's loved 
^;reation is ignored. The people at the nursing home are wonderful people who long for love and attention. They are 
iur history and we can learn so much from them." Harrouff concluded that Evangels strives to show Christ's love to the 
[jlderly. "This population is often forgotten, especially by the younger generation, and is lonely. By devoting a little of our, 
ime each week, we are able to bless their lives and also ours in the process."

Fellowship of Christian Athletes is dedicated to fellowship with 
students and the group is primarily focused on two things: God and 
sports. Though the name of this club may make you think that it is only 
for Christian athletes, the club and its members are more focused on 
having a group of members passionate about God and play or enjoy 
watching sports. FCA meets every Tuesday in the warming house for 
games, worship, a message, and food. Cassie Brainard, a member of 
FCA's leadership team, states, "we want our members to grow in fel- 
lowship and discipleship, use their gifts for Christ, and have a blast!" 

Chelsea Hays, Josue Sanchez, and Tim 
Thomas are all members of the tennis teams

FCA meets to pray together as a group about things going on both 
on campus and in individual club members' lives. Throughout the year 
FCA puts on several events ranging from a Super bowl party to holi- 
day parties to coach appreciation meals to even Olympic challenges. 
They have also teamed up with S.O.S to serve the homeless in the 
past as well. Members of the club who are involved in sports can 
generally be found leading prayers, devotionals, or worship services 
before games or matches to help team members be reminded to give 
praise to God for their talent and to be slow to anger when things do 
not go quite as practiced.

This year, Habitat for Humanity has become an integral part of campus life as students internalized the 
hhapel theme "hands." Over the course of the last three years, the club has helped with four different houses, 
pith a fifth house beginning during the spring semester. Students have helped to build and place the walls of 
|:he houses, as well as lay grass and plant flowers. 

Striving to fulfill their mission of being co-workers rather than charity. Habitat built the fourth house in part- 
liership with the Lockwood family. "I was so happy to see the family move into their new home. They worked 
parder than anyone to build the house, and I can't think of anyone who would deserve the house more than 
:hey do," said Junior Mark Lynn, a club co-leader. 

To help promote Habitat for Humanity, members sold neon bracelets and shirts with the slogan, "It's Ham 
lerTime!" and a picture of Dr. Bowling holding crossed hammers. Endorsed and promoted by Dr. Bowling 
himself, he showed his support by signing t-shirts. The money raised was given to the Kankakee County 
(3hapter of Habitat for Humanity to help build the next house for a family in need.

The area surrounding Olivet is populated by many different churches, each 
with a unique feel and draw. Sophomore Kerrielle Davis attends First Assem- 
bly Church of God, which is about a fifteen minute drive from campus. She 
feels the extra time to get to church is worth it. "It's very free; you can feel the 
Spirit is there. There are not a lot of younger people, but the older people are 
very friendly." 

Becca Reed also makes the drive for a church that feels like home, choos- 
ing to attend Kankakee First Church during the school year. "I like it because 
it's really welcoming, there's a homey feeling," she said. Junior Melinda Mor- 
gan attends Westbrook Church of the Nazarene. "I like that the Sunday school 
classes are really small groups," she said. 

Quite a few students also attend College Church, and some choose deeper 
involvement than just Sunday morning attendance. Kyle Shaughnessy and Joy 
MacDonald are both interns with the junior high ministry. "I saw itin the bulletin 
the first week of my freshman year," Kyle said. "God told me that this is what 
I needed to do. The thing I've enjoyed most is watching the boys in my small 
group mature in multiple ways over the past three years." "The most rewarding 
part is knowing that I am making a difference in the lives of girls for years to 
come," MacDonald reported. 

No matter what the name of the church. Olivet students have found Chris- 
tian homes that fit each of their individual needs.

New York. Honduras. Thailand. Haiti. Tiiis is just a sampling of the places Olivet allows students to travel 
to through Missions in Action. Senior Emily Hay went to Haiti with MIA and gained a new perspective. She ex- 
plained, "It was so awesome to see so many Haitians that have so much hope. I will always remember the ser- 
vice when the preacher talked about the story of Abraham and Isaac." 

Ainsley Stebbins, a sophomore, experienced the life-changing impact of MIA while in New York City. "They 
told us they like to call their organization TC,' which stands not only for Teen Challenge but also for Things 
Change,' and boy did things change while we were there! I know God taught me through this experience to be 
not so rigid in my life. Things change. I've got to learn to adjust." 

Junior Kelsey McNulty gave and received love through the ministry of an orphanage in Honduras. "Our 
friends in Honduras are such loving people! I will never forget my first day at the orphanage when we barely had 
enough time to hop out of the back of the pick-up truck before all of the kids rushed at us and hugged us!" 

Missions in Action not only plays a huge part around the world, but in the hearts and minds of the individuals 
involved in its ministry.

Mission Possible members gather 
together in prayer for the female 
inmates at JCDC. (gjf) 

A new rule has been set in place this year for Mission Possible, our on campus 
prison ministry: every member must now have photo identification passes. 

"Because of this, it has taken our ministry a great deal of time to get started," 
said member Lindsey Tobias. Once the group was able to get on its feet they started .^^ 
planning. One of the events they hope will take place is a Gospel Choir concert for the !|| 
inmates at Jerome Combs Detention Center. 

The rest of the semester they continued to live out their mission of spreading the 
love of Jesus Christ to the men and women in the prison. According to Tobias, "We do j 
this through fellowship and prayer with and for the inmates." 

This is very important because of the environment they live in, which includes 
sharing a cell with multiple people and only being able to read, write, sleep, or talk. 
Women in particular often have trouble keeping in contact with their families. Due to the 
rules, the inmates also cannot get under their blankets after they are done getting ready 
in the morning, despite the cold. 

Tobias said, "I know that the prison system is very cold and harsh in the United 
States, so by bringing the love of Christ to these individuals in the prison system I feel 
that I am bringing light into a dark place. I feel that I have been called to this position."

Heart4Missions members gather weekly in 

Cassidy Lancaster and Drew Dennis lead the 
ministry during the spring semester. 

Freshman Sarah Aeschliman draws students 
into Hearts4l\/lissions during "Give Your Life 
Away Week." 

Heart4Missions, a group dedicated to addressing world issues, has grown more this 
year than ever before. "We learn more about each other and grow closer as a group as 
we continue to share and pray for what issues we have a heart for," said Cassidy Lan- 
caster, a co-leader. 

During the first semester, Heart for Missions focused on the persecuted church. 
To raise awareness the club hosted an event called "The Underground," which was a 
meeting to discuss the church in other countries. "During the service, the basement of 

; Chapman was packed and someone from Voice of the Martyrs came and spoke," said 
Lancaster. "Then we broke off into prayer groups for persecuted nations." Each activity 
raises support for missions within the student body. Olivet is filled with people who have 

! first-hand knowledge. They've had other speakers such as McClain RD Samantha Allen, 
who spoke about her World Race experience, and Bob and Yo Artz, who are missionaries 

» in Thailand. 

Lancaster said, "I have had a growing heart for missions since middle school and this 
, ministry has really helped continue to grow that in me... it has made me excited to edu- 
cate others about world issues."

Michelle Towie, Rebecca Busier,

Olivetians for Life gives students a way to be actively involved in helping expecting mothers make wise 
decisions. Rebecca Hinkley, who co-leads along with Rachel Groters, explained, "We desire to be the voice 
of the unborn. We partner with the local pregnancy center Living Alternatives in their mission to transform and 
save lives." 

The club has about twenty consistent members and has worked this year to increase membership in 
order to raise more awareness. The club puts on an event every month to draw in more members and give 
current members a way to fellowship together. One of the events they put on that had a great turnout was a 
showing of the movie Blood Money. Occuring during "Sanctity of Life week," the goal of the movie was to edu- 
cate students about what is currently happening with abortion in the world today. 

Rachel Groters explains the benefit of being involved for students: "Before I began volunteering at our 
local Christian pregnancy center with Olivetians for Life, I'd always considered myself to be pro-life. But it took 
seeing what's being done there with my own eyes to make me really want to advocate for the right to life. So 
many lives have been changed because of the center's influence, and it's been a privilege to help out in what- 
ever way I can!"

together during practice. Not only do they present serious skits, 
but members get to be funny and show their humor off during a 
wide variety of skits that Omega puts on. (ap) 

Omega exists to provide a fun and exciting ministry opportunity to reach out to tine districts near 
Olivet. Tiie goal of Omega is to share the gospel through unique and sensational skits. "Omega is a 
chance to give back to God what He has already undeservingly given us. It is a chance to work in a minis- 
try with wonderful people. When you put a team together with a common goal, you're able to do so much 
more than working toward a goal alone. What better reason to work together as a group than to serve our 
God?" said Jessica Plantilla. 

Each year two teams of five students head out with a leader to perform on either Saturday or Sun- 
days during church services. They have also performed in chapel and at Jumpstart for freshmen. Omega 
has teamed up with other clubs such as the Prison Ministry and Urban Children Ministry to perform for a 
variety of audiences. 

Not only do members get a chance to perform all over the region and bring people the gospel in 
exciting ways, they get to build lasting relationships with their team members. Co-leader Brianna Lomas 
states, "The best part about this ministry is the relationships that are created within each team. By the end 
of the year a family has been created and we really look to one another for spiritual guidance and sup-

that really allows student to experience the Spirit of God in a free way," 
explained freshman Matthew Jones. 

Party with Jesus, most commonly known as PWJ meets every Mon- 
day night in the Warming House to worship together freely. PWJ is the 
only service on campus led entirely by students and provides great music 
for students to pour their hearts out and sing praises to God. Each Mon- 
day time and dedication goes into selecting worship music and a speaker 
to make sure that Party with Jesus is a meaningful experience for the stu- 
dents who come seeking to know God on a more personal level. Fresh- 
men class Chaplain Michael Poff stated, "I like Party with Jesus because 
it is a great time of worship, and I really believe God uses that time to 
make his presence known and to speak to students." During the Advent 
season, Party with Jesus does a special service titled "Party with Baby 
Jesus" where they focus on the incarnation of our Lord and Savior. 

PWJ provides students with a stress free environment where they 
can worship God and connect with other classmates in Christ Jesus on a 
weekly basis.

Pastor Ed runs the homeless shelter 

and works with the students of SOS. (s 

"Spread the gospel at all times. When 
necessary, use words," these words from Saint 
Francis characterizes the ministry of Save 
Our Streets. SOS is the homeless ministry on 
campus which goes to the Gift of God Street 
Church in Kankakee and works with Pastor Ed 
Kannape, to minister to the homeless popula- 
tion in our area. 

Junior Tracy Redman has been involved 
with SOS for three years and is very passion- 
ate about the outreach they provide. "SOS is 
relevant to Olivet because we are called to 
serve. Jesus was a poor construction worker 
who hung out with the drunkards and the pros- 
titutes. We need to reach out to those who are 
not saved, not just the people who are," stated 
Redman. Redman and other students involved 
in SOS minister to the homeless in Kankakee 
by eating, hanging out, having Bible study and 
fellowship with them. They also minister in Chi- 
cago by handing out lunches and are planning 
on connecting with Emmaus Ministries, which 
helps to get male prostitutes off of the streets in 

Overall, Redman stated that "the missions 
of SOS is to be the Hands and Feet of Christ, 
to serve those around us and those in poverty 
To be a good friend and to spread love to the 
marginalized. To show everyone they matter, 
but not in a prideful way, instead be humble 
and offer a helping hand."

John W. Whitehead, founder of Rutherford Institute said "Children are the living messages we send to a time we 
will not see." Urban Children's Ministry strives to do just that. "We want these children more than anything to feel the love 
of Christ, and one way they are going to feel this is if the relationship between them and their buddy grows," said junior 
Olivia Eaton. "Our mission is to be positive, driving influences in the lives of the children who visit, by loving them, being 
committed to them and by sharing the love of Christ," explained Rebah Seidler. 

On a Wednesday night, those who participate in Urban Children's Ministry play some fun games together, make 
a craft, have a snack, and hear a devotion. "During these times, we encourage the big buddies to share Christ and to be 
Christ to the kids, since many of the children that come do not come from a Christian background," said Eaton. Seidler 
also emphasized that "the biggest goal for the ministry is for the big buddies to be positive influences and lights of Christ 
to their little buddies." Though there is always fun and games, Christ is always at the center. "Urban Children's Ministry 
is about more than just having fun, but sharing Christ with them and showing them what being men and women of God 
really looks like" said Eaton.

While most people assume that golf is solely an individual sport, sophomore Tyler 
Karraker knows better. "In order to compete and win in a tournament, you need at least 
four good scores," he explained. "You can't rely on one person like other sports- if only one 
person plays well then the team will never win." 

Made up of nine guys, the Men's Golf team competes in several two-day long tour- 
naments throughout the fall and spring. Each day, every member plays a round of eigh- 
teen holes. After combining each person's two scores together, the four lowest scores on 
the team are found, and the team with the lowest total wins. 

"I like that you yourself are responsible for how you play and you don't have to worry 
about anyone else while you're playing," Tyler said. "However, at the end of the day, that is 
when the team aspect comes in. Each player contributes to the team." 

While he's dedicated to making himself the best player possible, Tyler has a higher 
goal than earning accolades just for himself. "The most important thing is to win confer- 
ence," he said. "I would love for our team to finally get to hang up a banner in the gym!" 

He knows from experience that practice pays off. "I was horrible my freshman year 
of high school," he said with a laugh. "But I really enjoyed playing, whether I was bad or 
good- it's just an overall fun sport. Even though I wasn't all that great, I managed to make 
the last spot on the conference team freshman year." With that shot of confidence to moti- 
vate him, Tyler practiced every day that summer, and his golfing skills began to shine. He 
ended up as the number one golfer on the team, was named an All-Conference player, 
and helped his team to the All City title twice. 

Used to living in Bourbonnais, the decision to attend Olivet as a commuter made 
sense. "I have a very close-knit family, and that was a major influence in choosing a col- 
lege," Tyler explained. Academic and golf scholarships from Olivet sealed the deal, and 
Tyler made the transition. With a major in business administration, he hopes to one day 
own his own recording studio and label. 

Tyler's personality is perfect for golf. He's the kind of person who intuitively knows 
how to make things fun, while still getting work done. "I like the laid back nature of the 
game; it's almost like you have no worries out there- unless you're playing badly of 
course!" he said with an easy grin.

Run. Run harder than you ever have, faster than 
your opponents, and longer then you think your body will let 
you. Overcome all obstacles and push through to the finish 
line. This is what the men's cross-country team does best. 

The team had a fantastic year, coming out strong 
and ready to face anything that got in their way. They 
started off the year winning first place at the Midwest Clas- 
sic, led by sophomore Mitchell Dale. They went on to place 
fourth in the college division of the Illinois Intercollegiate 
Championship, second at the Brissman-Lundeen Invita- 
tional, sixteenth at the Brooks Invitational, and fourth at the 
Great Lakes Invitational. 

Individual runners played a key component in help- 
ing the team maintain their standing, such as Kasey Fer- 
rigan, and Dylan Creger. The season wrapped up at the 
Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Championship, 
where the men placed second, earning them their 7*^ trip to 
the NAIA Nationals. 

The men's cross-country team gave it their all at the 
NAIA championship and took 20th place out of 32 schools.

Women's cross country ha^ soared, performing greater than they ever 
have before. "As a team we got three first place wins at our first three meets, 
and second to the number one ranked team in NAIA at our fifth meet," said 
junior Kortney Ellingboe. Having more freshmen on the team has also allowed 
for more participants in races. "They've definitely added their own personalities 
and strengths to the team, which makes it more fun as a group both in running 
and in just being a team," said Hannah Endrizzi, captain. 

The number of runners, as well as a close-knit team, is their biggest 
strength this year according to Endrizzi. "Cross country is such a tough and 
disciplined sport, both mentally and physically, so to be able to have all your 
teammates as a strong support system makes it so much easier to run all those 
miles and to stay motivated throughout the training season from June to No- 
vember; they really are like an extended family for me," said Endrizzi. 

One way the team fosters close friendships is through practicing togeth- 
er. "Camp helped us to learn about each other and the new incoming runners 
we received," said Ellingboe. "We saw what we could achieve with the girls 
through the week."

At the start of this season, the football team had only two wins combined in the past three seasons. This 
year brought a new coach and a dynamic strategy. They came out with a 5-6 record and a fresh direction. "To 
break our losing streak was amazing; I am not going to lie!" said Senior Dusstin Proehl. "A lot of us older guys 
had a rough couple years before this year and to finally get a win was great!" 

The first home game was won in overtime with an interception run back for a touchdown, bringing the 
entire crowd to their feet. The whole football team ran onto the field with a roar of celebration. "Especially win- 
ning the way we did, I was on cloud nine for about four days!" Proehl said with a grin. "It felt good." Coach Brian 
Fish has motivated the players into believing in themselves and the program. According to Proehl, "The thing 
that has changed the most is our attitude of just wanting to come to practice and work hard. Coach Fish really 
preaches that we need to compete with ourselves and if we give our best every day good things will happen." 

Throughout the season this initiative helped to emphasize that even if the scoreboard did not show a 
win, what mattered was that they played their best. "We really try to work together to play at our top potential; 
then we have a great chance at winning," Proehl said. After grinding out a change this season through hard 
work, the future of the program is sparkling. Most importantly, the team has become a family. Proehl stated, "I 
love these guys they are like my brothers. Our program is filled with guys who love Olivet and who love Christ."

What would you do if you had sixteen siblings all of whom were girls? Well, the 
volleyball team may not actually be blood related, but they have a connection that 
helps them to bring fire on the court. 

Senior Lauren Comfort, a defensive specialist, has been on Olivet's volleyball 
team for four years. When asked about what has brought them team together this 
year, she stated, "We went on a mission trip in May to Sun Valley Indian School 
in Sun Valley, Arizona, and that brought our team so much closer. We got closer 
on a much deeper level spiritually. Through the hard times of that week, we bet- 
ter learned the power of prayer and the power of supporting each other, which we 
brought back with us this year. We got closer than ever from that trip, so we worked 
hard when our freshmen came in to keep that same family feeling. 

Comfort also stressed the importance of communication and goal setting in help- 
ing the team to play at its best. "When we communicate and have fun, then we play 
tougher and have more energy, making us play better together. Before every prac- 
tice and every match, we always set goals for that specific day, both individual and 
team goals, and then we visualize ourselves doing things well. If we see ourselves 
practicing skills the right way, then we are more likely to do them correctly in prac- 
tice and in games. It helps us go into that day with a positive attitude and the right 
mind set." 

Most of all. Comfort really enjoys the fact that her team is like a family to her. "It 
is crazy how I went into my freshman year not knowing a soul, but ended my Olivet 
volleyball career with 20 sisters. There is no doubt that we have gone through hard 
times, but I think they are overshadowed by the great things our team has done in 
the last 4 years. I am so proud of what we have accomplished."

The men's soccer team finished this year with a record of 6-4 in the conference. "Our goals going into every 
season are the same. We want to win the conference and head to the national tournament. We try to take things 
one game at a time so that we can hopefully achieve our ultimate goal," explained Michael Da Silva, a sophomore 
midfielder. To prepare for the season, the team has camp starting in the beginning of August. "We have a very young 
team this year with 8 freshmen, so we really just had to try and work things out," said Silva. The team improved with 
every practice and game. "I think that with time our team will find more and more chemistry and that will be scary for 
our opponents. We just want to continue working hard on the field as well as in the classroom. When we leave for 
summer, we need to continue working so that we can come back next season and take another shot at going back to 
Nationals," said Silva. S 

The coaches help the team do their best, provide faith, and coordinate wins. Their love for the sport also contrib- 
utes. "I love soccer because of the joy that it brings to the players and to the fans. Soccer teaches many principles 
discipline, perseverance, hard work, and more. I love the aesthetics and athleticism of soccer," said Yonda Abogunrin. 

The biggest strength in this team this year is how much talent they have. "We were quite energetic. Practices were 
fun because of the energy and it translated into many of our games," said Abogunrin. "Once we combine our skill level 
with the hard work it takes to win, I think that this program will reach an all-time high. We are super young and I am re- 
ally excited about the future," said Silva.

The Lady Tigers had a very successful season with many milestones. The team overcame a lot; there were 
many injuries in the middle of the season, but the team stuck together as a family and played their best. 

Ranked sixth this season, the women's soccer team took the crown for the CCAC regular season and were 
the CCAC Tournament Champions for the first time in Olivet's history. The team played in the peliminary round 
of the NAIA tournament and won, which advanced them to the NAIA National Tournament in Decatur, Alabama, 
where the Lady Tigers suffered a tough lost to Embry- Riddle University. 

At Naionals the Tigers held the score to zero for a majority of the first half before Embry- Riddle scored two 
consecutive goals. Shortly after. Senior Janel Schmitt scored a goal for the Tigers off an assist from Katrina 
Holm. Goalie Wendy Espejel recorded seven savesduring the game. 

Senior Forward Jessica Jones said, "We play our hardest not only for each other, but for the glory of God. 
We use our talents on the field to bring Him praise and we hope other teams see Him through us on and off the

During the 2011 season the men's golf team demonstrated great passion for the game and every time they h| 
the green and excellence shined through as they gave their all. 

The team started of the season with a 6*^ place finish at Calumet St. Joseph, led by junior Aaron Miles and 
senior Matthew who tied for 18'^ place individually. They continued their season with finishing 8th at Wedgewoo 
Golf Course, led by Miles and freshman Michael Bork, and 14*'^ at Illinois Valley Community College Invitational 
led by sophomore Tyler Karraker. At the IVCC Invitational the team as a whole scored 650, only 78 strokes over 
par. The team finished out the season at the NAIA Midwest Invitational led by Bork and Karraker. The team 
placed 13th overall with a score of 681 ,113 over par. 

These men showed that they wanted to achieve excellence both in scores and in sportsmanship this year, 
and enjoyed a great season together.

It's fun to do new things and figure what works and what doesn't and learn 
everything as we go. It really brings us closer and figure out how everyone 

Grambush explains that the girls bonded together because it is the 
second year they have had the program and a majority of the girls re- 
turned from last season, with a few new additions. When asked about a 
ritual that the team uses in order to work better together Grambush fo- 
cused on the spiritual aspect of the team's relationship by stating, " We 
made sure that on the bus before every tournament we would have one us 
do a devotional to center ourselves on why we were there and who we are 
playing for. God is really the reason why we do what we do and who has 
given us these abilities to play."

This year many men's tennis players made tiieir way to the small national tournament in Alabama. "The girls' 
and guys' team blasted everyone at regionals in St. Louis, Missouri," said Josue Sanchez. 

"We are all working hard and always do things together as a team," stated junior Julian Kurz. Through this, 
the team has become more united this year. "Everybody on the team is really competitive and we really try and 
push each other to do our best," said Jensen. "We all kind of rely on each other to help the team out. And per- 
sonally, I just love playing." 

According to Kurz, the team is unified and has led to many great friendships. Tennis is a really difficult sport; 
you have to work really hard, but it pays off," said Sanchez. "There is nothing cooler than winning a difficult 
three-hour match, the look in the face of your opponent when he knows he is down, and the feeling of coming 
back when you are down."

The women's tennis team strives to be tine best, demonstrate excellent sportsmanship, and to be dedicated 
to the team. They have won 8 NAIA Region Championships thus far and their reputation for being the best theyii; 
can be continues to grow as the years progress. I h 

This year the team started off by taking the court against Cornerstone University, and freshman Aziza Butoy 
and junior Aurelie Hascoet won their singles match 8-0 allowing for Olivet to take home their first win. As the 
year progressed, the team showed more dedication and teamwork as they played against various other teams. 
At the Hinds-Kellogg tournament hosted by Western Illinois University, Olivet brought home two singles champi 
onships by Hascoet and Butoyi and one doubles championship from the team allowing for another win. Butoyi 
also won the ITA East Central Regional Championship hosted by Mckendree University, and as a team the girls 
came in 6* place in the USTA/ITA National Small College Championship. 

Tennis takes a lot of training and dedication, but these women have what it takes and push forward to 
achieve higher scores, to win their sets and matches, and to make Olivet proud.

Being on the cheerleading team is more than just motivating the crowd 
and the team; there is a serious athletic aspect of the sport as well. Junior 
Marcie Thompson said that her favorite memories happened when the 
team achieved a difficult skill such as a new pyramid or stunt: "This was 
especially true around Homecoming when we were working really hard 
late at night each day of the week." Senior Michael Alexander said, "The 
squad worked well together this year because of everyone's drive to get 
things done. We all wanted to get our stunts and everyone was pushing 
each other to do it. It has been important for us this year having more time 
to practice things like tumbling on the weekends and being taught more 
about stunting by other coaches." 

For Thompson, the sport means more to her than just cheering on the 
athletic teams. "I found my first friends at Olivet through cheerleading and 
it has always given me a stable place during all the chaos of college. This 
year we have become more of a family rather than a team of several dif- 
ferent cliques. As a family, we encourage each other and look out for each 
other." At the end of every practice, the group sits down together to pray 
together for each other individually and for the team as a whole. 

Thompson stated, "I believe we have had amazing growth in the past 
year and have built a stable team to transition into next year. Next year 
we will be looking at a more competitive squad and hope to be performing 
more at off-campus exhibitions and competitions."

The men's basketball season was one of growth and develop- 
ment. The team had to overcome a lot of obstacles this season due 
to many injuries. 

The Tigers started off as an inexperienced team, but they gained 
experiences and proved they can compete with any team in the na- 
tion. Senior guard Antonio Marshall broke both personal and team 
records this season. He also was named NAIA national player of the 
week at one point during the season. 

The team received other recognition with players Ben Worner, 
Jake Boyce, and Antonio Marshall being named apart of the All-Tour- 
nament team at the Embry-Riddle Mitsubishi tournament in Novem- 
ber. The team also served within the Chicago Heights Nazarene 
Church, where they put on a basketball clinic for the church's youth 
basketball program. 

Coach Hodge enjoys coaching here at ONU because it gives 
him the ability to make a difference in his athlete's daily lives. Coach 
Hodge also stated, "It is more than just winning games and champi- 
onships; it is about developing champions both on and off the floor."

This year the women's basketball team added seven new freshmen 
after losing two seniors from last year. 

"It's always an adjustment having new people come in and learn the 
system," said senior Stephanie Denius. "I think that there were so many 
new people, it took a little longer for us to really 'click.'" 

"We have more depth than last year's team," said junior Danielle Tolber 
"It took some time for the freshmen to realize that when you're playing Tige 
Ball you have to give everything 100% every time that you're out there." 

The team was also stronger, having better shooters and rebounders. 
This season's goal was to return to Nationals and go further than last year, 
where they finished in the second round. 

On January 24, the women were able to beat their rival St. Xavier for th 
second time in 12 years. "It was only the second time that St. Xavier lost or 
their home court since 2009," said Tolbert. "Another accomplishment that 
we've had was just to gel together to make it where we are now." 

It was moments like these that helped drive Tolbert to do her best. "I 
am not afraid of any opponent that we play," she said. "I play hard every 
time. I know that if we all play hard for the entire game that we will come 
out on top with the victory. The team motivates each other. Even though 
someone may be having a bad shooting day, we still encourage them to 
keep shooting."

If you want to see a group of guys who will stop at nothing to get a 
win, look no further than the Olivet baseball team. Senior Casey Mast 
says that the team is made up of a group of talented guys who want 
to win. "We are willing to do what it takes, which has helped the team 
to work well together this year." Mast also emphasized, "We do not cut 
corners at practice, with school work, or in games." This helps them to 
improve their game and move towards a victory. 

Mast's favorite memories happened when the baseball team would 
travel together. "The bus rides are usually long, but we have good 
camaraderie so the trips are always fun." Mast will always be grateful 
to the baseball team because, "It has allowed me to go to college and 
receive an education. More importantly it gave me four more years to 
play the game I love!"

While not everyone who loves to play sports has enough time, dedica- 
tion, or skill to play at a collegiate level, they still enjoy playing. 

Intramurals offer students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to participate 
in sports and activities that they love as they playfully compete against rival 
teams and get to have fun with fellow teammates. Sophomore Jacob Rob- 
erts loves getting to participate in various intramurals, including basketball. 
Roberts explains, "Intramurals are a great way to get involved on campus 
while enjoying good competition and keeping open the possibility of gaining 
new interests and meeting new people." 

Intramurals gives students extracurricular activities that are not as time 
consuming as a collegiate level sport, but just as fun. There are Intramurals 
for all students to participate in, ranging from electronic games and foosball 
to card games like Euchre and Rook to basketball and volleyball. With such 
a wide variety of opportunities to participate throughout the year, students 
can choose to participate in more than one Intramural to keep them active 
and in fellowship with other students. 

Winners of any competition are awarded with an Intramural t-shirt and 
the satisfaction of knowing they have what it takes to beat their rivals and 
take home the gold.

The mafia bus. Dubious brown paper bags. Nate's birtiiday. The Dubstep version of Latin songs. This, in a nutshell, 
is Orpheus choir: a complex web of friendships, inside jol<es, laughter, and of course singing. "Even though there are sixty 
of us, we spend so much time together and get to know each other so well on tours that it's really a big family," explained 
junior Ben Cherney. 

Elizabeth Morley, choir chaplain, agreed: "There are a thousand choirs out there, but the special thing about Or- 
pheus is how much we care about each other, come with energy, and want to be there." Rather than see rehearsal as a 
chore, the members arrive in the same manner that they would to a family dinner; excited, chatty, a little bit too loud. "It's 
almost therapeutic," said President Kyle Hance. 

Three tours, multiple concerts, community events, and the Orpheus Variety Show are the choir's sustenance. A 
highlight from this year was the opportunity to sing a Christmas concert at The Art Institute of Chicago. "We came in the 
bacl< to enter the building," Hance explained, "so we were walking through the museum and there's Buddha and all these 
pagan idols and worship symbols for all these religions that aren't Christianity, and amidst all of that we were able to pres- 
ent the glory of God." Director Dr. Jeff Bell described the experience as, "It was special in a way only God could arrange." 

God's handiwork was also visible last May, as the choir traveled across the Atlantic to visit Africa Nazarene Uni- 
versity in Nairobi, Kenya. For eight days, they packed in concerts, connections, and events to help promote the university 
and its newly started church. About 300 people showed up for Family Day, which Orpheus facilitated by inviting community 
members, painting faces, singing, and playing games with the kids. 

In the midst of the children, Kyle Hance was talking with an African man when suddenly an "Oh snap!" moment 
happened. "I was just doing it like we do it here," he said, demonstrating by shaking his fingers in a quick snap, "and all of 
a sudden he started doing it, and I was like, 'Dude, it's international! You guys can do it too?'" Unfortunately, Hance learned 
that he was coming off a little differently than he intended; in Africa, the "Oh snap!" gesture is considered to be a threat, 
which parents use to warn children they are in for a beating! 

Despite his unintended aggression, a number of kids turned up to church the next day on their own, indicating the 
success of the outreach. Sunday, however, was fraught with its own miscommunication perils. Caleb Carr remembered 
how he felt when he was asked to be on a prison worship team: "I was just thinking, are you serious? That's completely 
terrifying!" Their Kenyan leader suggested that the team get in a little practice before they got started. "We're like yeah, I 
guess we could use some practice if we're going to go into a Kenyan prison to talk to people!" Carr said with a laugh. "So 
we get over to the church, and we've got the instruments set up and everything and the word praise came up. Praise and 
worship team! Not prison worship team!" His willing spirit, however, to minister in a Kenyan prison with little preparation, 
demonstrated well the attitude of the whole group. 

Their ability to laugh at themselves shone through when about eleven members got a stomach bug, nicknamed 
"The Amoeba." Just before the end of the trip, "mass mayhem" broke loose, and each person had to submit a stool sample 
for testing, even if they didn't have symptoms. "It was really funny, and we couldn't help but just joke about it because we 
ALL had to do it," said Hance. "Everyone was literally walking around carrying their little brown bag. Some people went to 
London," said Carr, pausing dramatically, "with their amoeba. Little travel buddy with ya." 

Most of their trips are less exotic than that, but in a good way. Each of their three tours, characterized by hilari- 
ous traditions, takes them to different churches and venues in the Midwest. "We take a charter bus and a mini bus, and 
the mini bus is devoted to mafia," Cherney said. "If you aren't going to play, you aren't allowed to sit on the bus, basically, 
and it is so intense!" Between five devotion times and several performances, the choir also finds time to squeeze in tour 
awards and Dubstep remixes of their favorite Latin piece. Lux Aurumque. They've also added flair to their rendition of Hap- 
py Birthday, which used to just be an ugly yelling affair, by adopting the African version. "It's kind of a call and response, 
and at the end you get water dumped on your head," Morley said. 

Now a veteran member, Morley has found a home in Orpheus. "What drew me to it the very first night at the 
welcome party was the community and the love and just the fun; it's a great group of people," she said. From concerts to 
traditions to cultural misunderstandings, the choir members grow into a rowdy family throughout the school year. "They're 
uplifting to me, just through everyday life," Hance said.

ut with teens," explained Joey Ramirez. "We try not to make it all about serving in music, but we try to give

From the performances of Messiah and Sounds 
of the Season to concerts at local churches, the fifty 
members of Chrysalis can be heard. This choir, made 
up purely of females, revolves around sacred music as 
well as Broadway songs and popular music. 

"We have sung at Manteno Church of the Naza- 
rene and many events on campus," said Bekka Rog- 
ers. "The highlight of our year was having the op- 
portunity to sing with the Gaither Vocal Band during 
Homecoming." All the Olivet choirs combined for the 
event to back the Gaithers, singing to an audience of 
about 3,000 people. The ladies also had the opportu- 
nity to travel through churches in Indiana during the 
spring semester, but they see themselves as more 
than just a singing and traveling group. 

"Chrysalis is an opportunity for young women to 
join together to become a unique community," said 
Rogers of the family atmosphere within the group. "We 
sing together, share our lives, and become friends. We 
are showing God's love to our campus and surround- 
ing community by exemplifying the amazing talent He 
has given us." "During our rehearsals, we have devo- 
tions and times of sharing and get to know each other 
on a deeper level," said Andrea Richardson. With their 
hearts in the right place, they live out their purpose of

Created in the 2010-201 1 school 
year, Clefhangers has spent a 
majority of this year in practice 
fellowship, and prayer (gjf) 

Being involved in the choir has helped the mennbers have fun, learn more about music, and 

glorify God. (s) 

A wide variety of students from all majors came together to form Clefhangers, a show choir made up of twenty singers 
and instrumentalists. "We sing and dance, trying to bring the joy of music and performance to the world all for the glory of God. 
We are dedicated to achieving excellence as performers and using this group as an outreach," said sophomore Seth Lowery, a 

The idea was birthed last year by Music Education majors. Dr. Reddick, head of the Music Department, approved the 
idea. "We wanted to have experience with show choir in the event that they are hired at a school that has one," said Lowery. 
'This is essential in this part of the country, where show choir is most popular." Since it began the group has performed one show 
as a test drive. Encouraged by their success, the choir held dancing and singing auditions for this current year. 

"The small performance we did this past spring got our name out and piqued interest amongst the student body," said 
Lowery. "It taught us a lot about working with others and striving for excellence. I personally felt that this experience helped me 
to mature as a performer and as a person. The Lord spoke to me through being a part of this group." 

During the spring semester the choir performed multiple times including a competition at a local high school in Febru- 
ary and at Olivet in April. "This is important to us, because it gives us a chance to witness to teens through our performing," said 
Lowery. "We can show the high schoolers that we aren't 'stuffy' or 'hypocritical.' Music can be the common ground through 
which we relate to the students." Lowery joined the choir to learn, but also for another reason entirely; he loves to sing, a trait 
shared and capitalized on by the group. 

"This is seriously an honor to be a member of something that started last year and is unlike anything that this university 
has seen before," said Geeding. "It is my prayer that God will receive all the glory throughout this endeavor and that we can 
share His love through our practices, performances, and everyday life."

Talents are given to us by God to use for His glory. Catie

everything to honor God. We are not in the band for our glory, 
but for God's glory," she said. Trevor Holdham, also a member, 
finds it a fun and rewarding musical experience. 

The time members spend investing in their music al- 
lows them a chance to get to know each other. "You are able 
to have connection with other players. Being in band has also 
helped us grow together as a community," Young said. Dur- 
ing their concerts, there is always hope that the music will be 
a blessing to those hearing it. "We have a mission of using the 
talents God has given us. You never know when Concert Band 
can touch someone."

For sophomore Ben Geeding, two things that go to- 
gether perfectly are music and performing. For this reason, he 
is involved in many campus musical ensembles, one of which 
is Concert Singers. "It is such a blessing to be able to work with 
someone as knowledgeable as our conductor, Dr. Woodruff, and 
we have a lot of fun. We all love music and we all love singing, 
so it is a perfect fit for people who love to be challenged vocally." 

Concert Singers are involved in many events on campus includ- 
ing the Homecoming festivities. Sounds of the Season, Night 
of Jazz, and Chamber Ensemble concerts. They also sing with 
different ensembles, such as Gospel Choir and the Show Choir 
here on campus. 

Wherever they go, Geeding said, "The members of Concert 
Singers seek to glorify God in all that we do. Word, deed, 
thought, and song; we aim to sharpen the skills He has 
equipped us with in order to point to His majesty. We don't sing 
only sacred music. We sing everything from Hungarian folk 
songs to jazz to sacred praises. We believe that as long as we 
sing, we sing to Him."

Do you have rhythm? If so, the handbell choir is the group 
for you. While it might not seem like it, the handbell is actually a 
percussion instrument. The group implements a variety of tech- 
niques to play the handbells, from ringing to slapping them down 
on the table to tapping them with percussion mallets. 

The group's goal is to play together so it sounds like only 
one person is playing. As performers frequently play two bells 
simultaneously, everyone must count accurately to create one 
sound. The unique sound adds a fun touch to each music perfor 
mance at Olivet. The handbell choir has the opportunity to per- 
form at two of the Chamber Ensemble concerts throughout the

The jazz band adds flair to any concert, like the

different styles of music from Swing to Latin. The jazz band 
is made up of talented musicians who audition to earn a 
spot. Patrick Wright, who plays lead trumpet in the jazz band 
said, "I joined the jazz band because jazz was my strong suit 
all through high school. I wanted to continue playing jazz, 
and that was the opportunity Olivet had for me." 

The jazz band consists of five saxophones, four 
trombones, four trumpets, a piano player, bass player, and a 
drum set. "My favorite thing is the opportunity to learn more 
and more about jazz from Dr. Jacklin, who has been an awe- 
some first-year teacher. He will definitely take this band to 
new places," said Wright.

Marching Band is a iiuge family here at Olivet; the members all come together with different majors, back- 
grounds, and personaliities all with one focus. 

Music is one thing they all have in common and it brings them together to accomplish their one goal of 
glorifying God while performing for crowds. The group starts rehearshing two weeks before school starts and con 
tinues to practice five hours a week during the school year. The halftime show this year was called "Red Sqaure,: 
which used music of Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff to create a drama that pulled the audience in and ended with 
an incredible triumph. Drum major Rae Marie Donaldson said her favorite part of the season was, "During our laSj 
practice we had the first snowfall, and an inch of snow was dumped on us during the first 30 minutes. It was the \ 
perfect way to end the marching season."

One of the most pre^igK)us music ministries on campus is 
Tiie Olivetians. Tine Olivetians consist of eleven extremely talent 
ed Olivet students who enjoy pouring their heart out in songs anc 
praises to God. When the Olivetians are not on campus perform 
ing, they are spending their weekends and summers traveling 
around the region preforming in churches and at special events. 

Sophomore Amber Leffel, who joined the group this year, 
explains where her interest in the group came from; "I have for a 
long time felt called to minister to people through music, and I al- 
ways admired the Olivetians when I watched them while growing 
up." She looks at her opportunity to participate in the Olivetians 
as God's way of pulling together her passion for ministering and 
her love for the group. Leffel states, "I love to travel and I love to 
sing, and I can barely believe that I get to do the thing that I have 
always wanted to!" 

Leffel's favorite part about being involved in the Olivetians, 
however, is not about her own desire or passion, but about 
God's. "The most important part in this is that the name of God 
is made known and glorified," stated Leffel. God uses the talents 
of these eleven spectacular singers to bring people into His King- 
dom, and they are glad to be a part of such an amazing experi-

Orpheus, a music ministry at Olivet, is one of the largest music 
groups on campus. Orpheus consists of over fifty students who have 
a passion for music ministry. These students share their talent with 
fellow Olivetians while on campus and with the region surrounding 
Olivet when touring throughout the year. 

Sophomore Caleb Garr explains that Orpheus is like a big fam- 
ily that can get together and enjoy time spent rehearsing instead 
of doing homework. Carr stated, "It's four hours a week when I can 
drop all the craziness of school, work, and everything else and just 
be with people who care - people who laugh with me, pray with me, 
and sing with me." 

^ Carr also pointed out that he loves to look at the faces of the 
people who watch Orpheus sing; "You can see it in their eyes - they 
get what we are saying and it is speaking directly to them." Junior 
Lindsey Hayes says the best part of being in Orpheus is the oppor- 
tunity to travel together making memories and spreading the good 
news of Jesus Christ through song.

Being a part of percussion ensemble is more than just keep-

about directing the group is, "Seeing the energy and enthusiasnr 
that the students exhibit towards each of their individual parts of 
the entire product. When the whole thing comes together in the 
end, the students seem very excited and proud about their contr 
bution to the experience." 

Percussion ensemble is about more than just the music. It 
is about the students who are a part of it and the experiences 
they have while making music. Junior Chris Field said, "My two 
favorite things are just having fun with everyone at practices anc 
performances and the cool pieces we play." Senior Mike Zaring 
said, "The best parts about being in the percussion ensemble 
was the time that was spent with other percussionists, having a 
good time, and molding a piece of music into a really beautiful 
work of art."

Junior Jade Green described gospel choir as a 
family: "We lift each other up to God and we praise Him 
together. Even when we're in practice we are still wor- 
shiping our Father. It is not just normal 'choir' practice, 
it is a praise session." However, the most important 
part of gospel choir is the opportunity to bless others 
with the gospel in musical form. Green said, "Gospel 
Choir is becoming increasingly more popular, so we are Jade Green, Emily Hay, and Elizabeth Kuhns have become 
participating in more events. This allows us to share close friends through Gospel Choir. They enjoy traveling togeth- 

God's love with more people so it is really great!" ^' ^^^ spreading the word of God. (kb) _ ^

Testament is the men's choir at 
Olivet. Testament's purpose is to 
build relationships among the men 
on campus by giving them an outlet 
to meet new friends. The group per-

local churches; they also participated 
in Messiah and Sounds of the Sea-

Olivet has two orchestras: University Orchestra and 
University Strings. Both groups play a wide variety of music 
and participate in many concerts throughout the school year. 
This year Olivet was able to present the world premiere of 
"Raggedy Ann's Adventures" by American composer and 
Olivet alumnus David Culross. Other performances included 
"Fall Pops", Handel's "Messiah", "Sounds of the Season" 
and also tours to schools and churches. Having two com- 
plete orchestras made up of undergraduate students is 
unique for a school our size. 

Dr. Woodruff stated, "We emphasize that if every aspect 
of our lives is to be dedicated to God's purposes, then stew- 
ardship of our gifts and attention to the details of making 
music well are profound acts of worship." The Orchestra's 
mission is to help students understand what it means to fulfill 
their God-given calling to be good stewards with their musi- 
cal gifts.

"Our strength is a contented and intelligent connmunity." TInis truth, spoken by fornner US president 
Rutherford Hayes almost a century ago, is at the heart of the mission of ONU's Multi-Ethnic Relations 
Club. "We're about the unity and fellowship that God constantly talks about in the Bible. We celebrate that 
friendship and the education of different ethnicities and races," said President Gregory-Elijah Bennett. 
The club hosts events both to celebrate differences in cultures and to cultivate understanding of them. 
Christmas Expressions, an annual coffee shop show featuring poetry and songs, highlights talented in- 
dividuals, as does ONU's Got Talent each spring. The club also helped to sponsor Olivet's Fashion Show 
and worked closely with Mu Kappa and Gospel Choir. "I think we have the best events on campus," said 
Ariel Turner with a grin. "The little coffee shop shows have big turnouts." 

MERC also runs an aggressive education campaign, seeking to create an intelligent community of 
students. In February they created posters and chapel videos to raise awareness of Black History Month. 
Another facet was the Black History Wheel of Fortune event, which offered prizes for students who could 
correctly remember facts about historical Black Americans from posters put up around campus. With mo- 
tivation stemming from a historical legacy of persistence, the group works tirelessly to get their name out, 
from showing movies like The Help to creating display cases in the library. 

While it may appear that their energy is all focused outwardly, the group strives to create a model of 
unity for the campus to follow within their group. They meet weekly and try to complete one or two ser- 
vice projects each semester. Member Moiling Jin explained, "My favorite part of MERC is the socializing 
time. Everyone brings the unique aspect of their own culture to share with other people." Under her guid- 
ance, the club celebrated the Chinese New Year at one of their meetings in true traditional style by eating 
dumplings and passing out red envelopes containing chocolate coins. 

"MERC helps you learn to talk to other people who didn't grow up the same way as you did," said 
Justine Espersen. They've created a community of members, which is why Vice President Torraine Hoover 
looks forward to meetings. "I like to touch base with people because it makes me feel like we're more of a 
family," she said. To support each other, they set aside time each meeting to address members' spiritual 
needs. "As chaplain, I present devotionals and encouraging scripture to uplift our group. We're in col- 
lege so we're all stressing out about work and school. It's just good to have an encouraging group," said 

While currently thriving, the club actually had humble beginnings. "When I first came into MERC, we 
didn't even meet weekly, just every two or three weeks. It wasn't as closely knit and family oriented as it 
is now. It has grown mightily," said Bennett. MERC, Gospel Choir, and Mu Kappa all stemmed from what 
was once just a small committee on Multi-Ethnic Relations. "It was just about two or three people who met 
and tried to just come together and talk and make themselves more aware," said Bennett about the club's 
formation. "Now we have twenty to thirty people meeting each week, and we host successful events. My 
vision is to always remember where we came from, and also to make us one of the most prominent clubs 
on campus." While prominence may be the goal, communion is the means. Despite all they do, Bennett 
sees the real success of MERC not in an event or a meeting. "When I see a smile or laugh between two 
different races, that's my favorite part, for the simple fact that it lets me know this is not in vain," he said. 
"Everything that our forefathers went through to bring unity, to stop prejudice, to show that everybody can 
come together and use the same bathroom and eat in the same restaurants, was not in vain; that's what it 
comes down to for me."

Associated Student Council, better known as ASC, wants to give Olivet students the best experiences they can and to 
change the school for the better. Student Body President Kyle Lowry, strongly emphasized communication in the council 
this year. Part of the way that communication is practiced is by discussing and correcting ONU rumors. "ASC members 
do their best to find out what the facts are in a situation and set the rumors straight when they are repeated," said Lowry. 
This is done specifically through the issues of the GlimmerGlass, along with The Hub and Tiger Text, which help pass 
along information to the students. 

When asked what the student council hopes to do for the student body, Vice President for Women's Residential Life, 
Karyn Nichols stated, "ASC is here for the students and the Olivet community, and we want to know what we can do to 
make the students have a better college experience." Another major aspect of Associated Student Council is hosting 
events that ONU students will enjoy. "We basically plan for the entire year the first month or two of school," said Mitch 
Johnson, Vice President for Social Life. These events include the Block Party, Ollies Follies, 12 Days of Christmas and 
many more. 

Other branches that make up ASC are Aurora, Club Relations, Finance, Glimmerglass, Spiritual Life and Publicity. "I 
serve for clubs on campus, helping them go through development to plan events and keep the budget when they plan 
events," stated Breanne Bambrick, Vice President for Student Relations. She is the first face that people see when they 
enter the ASC office, acting as a secretary as she takes notes during the meetings and shows people where to go. "Ev- 
eryone on council loves the position they are in," said Bambrick, "it's a blessing to serve the student body.

Dr. Bowling isn't the only president around 
Olivet. Each class is led by a peer-elected student 
president, chaplain, and five representatives. When 
all the classes converge, they form the Associated 
Student Council. The council has worked extremely 
hard to build unity throughout the student body by 
putting on multiple social events throughout the 
school year. Some of this year's events included 01- 
lie's Follies and the Candy Costume Fest, as well as 
all-school speed dating. 

Individual class events included the seniors' 
Silent Night Masquerade, an extremely formal event 
in the Venetian Renaissance style, with a Christmas 
flare. Sporting classy hors d'oevres and desserts, 
as well as a live string quartet and a superlative 
award ceremony, the banquet took the edge off the 
lack of an all-school winter banquet for the senior 
class. In the spring is the annual senior banquet, a 
time to get together and celebrate the four years the 
seniors have had together as a class. "We want their 
last year here at Olivet to be a year that the class of 
2012 will always remember," Kayla Rolling, Presi- 
dent of the senior class, explained. 

Other events include the junior class bonfire 
and sledding party, sophomore BBQ, and freshmen 
cosmic bowling. Over 250 freshmen went to Brook- 
mont Lanes and bowled the night away. The four 
hours of bowling included a bowling tournament, 
won by Sierra Navarro with a terrific score of 254. 
Events such as these not only allow students to get 
to know each other, but also facilitate a good time on 
the weekends.

DSL Cameras, Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, and Microsoft Word are essential tools for the Aurora staff as they work hard throughof 
the school year to create a yearbook that will be cherished by the student body and faculty. As the school year goes on, the yearbook i 
staff attends all of the campus events, as well as events sponsored by clubs and ministries and much more, documenting a year full of 
memories to preserve for students to look back at for years to come. This year, the Aurora staff worked hard to put together a yearboo 
with the theme "Let Your Light Shine." As Christians we are to shine our lights for the whole world to see, and as a campus we glow 
when we demonstrate this command from the Lord. This year's theme originated from Matthew 5:14-16 which explains our call from 
Christ to "shine before others... and glorify your Father in Heaven." 

The yearbook staff is led by Executive Editor, senior Sarah Zelhart, who has been involved with yearbooks for seven years and is iij 
her second year as Aurora Editor. Zelhart manages the staff, edits pages, and much more ensuring the staff meets all their deadlines ^ 
and creates the best yearbook possible. Each branch of the Aurora staff (photography, design, writing and business) is led by an Exec| 
five, of whom Zelhart states, "They are some of the greatest people I know. I would never be able to do all of this without their help. 
They are a great group of friends and we have grown extremely close. I love working with them." 

Despite moments of stress and long hours in the office, Sarah explains, "I wouldn't change this experience for anything. I have an 
awesome staff who works extremely hard throughout the year on top of all their school work and other extracurricular activities; they , 
always manage to get everything done." '

The members of Biophilic enjoy getting a 
break from classes and labs to hangout 
together and shiare laughs and memories 
with others in their same field of study, (s) 

Every month members of Biophilic have 
;a get together and eat, play games, and 
have a great time to take away from the 
stress of everyday life, (s) 

The Biophilic club gives Biology majors the opportunity to be 
involved in a community where everyone knows the ups and 
downs of being a Biology major. Another advantage of Biophilic is 
that students can to get know their professors on a more personal 
level. Club President James Smit explained, "One of the things that 
is great about Biophilic is that it gives students an opportunity to 
interact with professors outside of the classroom. The professors 
usually bring a lot of humor and energy to our meetings." 

The club offers its members various activities to participate in 
throughout the year, such as helping in the Kankakee River clean 
up, hosting a bone marrow drive, and throwing parties for events 
such as Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Senior Biophilic 
majors also give presentations on academic options after college to 
the underclassman, and the club notifies its members of opportuni- 
ties to listen to speakers whos message is relevant to the biology 
field. Sophomore Kenzi Roberson enjoys participating in Biophilic 
because it is a "great opportunity to hang out with other biology 
majors and take a break from studying."

Capitol Hill Gang exists to give students an opportunity to be actively involved with politics around campus. Matthew 
Van Dyke, CHG president explains, "As the only school-sanctioned political club, it holds the rare distinction of a truly non- 
partisan entity." 

Over the last few years, CHG has gained popularity and has tripled in size to over 60 active members. In addition 
to meeting 2 times a week to discuss politics and current world situations, this organization holds debates, hosts speakers, 
serves in the community and helps with local campaigns. Members enjoy getting to know more about politics and what they 
believe in. Member Matthew Logan shared his thoughts about the importance of being involved. "The greatest part of Capi- 
tol Hill Gang this year has been in the way we have challenged and debated our various viewpoints. I love being able to say 
that I've developed relationships with many of my peers on both sides of the aisle due to this club," stated Logan. 

This club is not exclusive to those pursuing a major dealing with politics, but is open to any Olivet student interested 
in getting involved with politics in the community. Van Dyke also explained that the goal for this previous year was, "We 
wanted to inform more people about politics because it affects everything we do. With the upcoming 2012 elections, the clul 
has been busier than ever, working to set up forums and debates to discuss the issues that affect us every day."

Chemistry club ties in what students learn in the classroom to their

iManteno with their professors to hang out and enjoy a sweet treat. They 
[also usually put on seasonal events that tie in chemistry for fun and fellow- 

This year they visited classrooms in an effort to inform children about 
science and what scientists do. They created fun and exciting mini-labs 
that the schools rarely have the funding to do. 

While the major is tough at some points, especially in the first two 
years, Doherty explained, "Chemistry Club fosters an environment for the 
upperclassman to get to know the freshmen, as well as provide them with 
ittle tips and advice so that maybe they can better understand Chemistry 
and be more successful both in and out of the classroom... or should I say 
ab room!"

Just how do you pronounce the name of the social work club? "I've heard It could be said dye-a-cone-ee- 
yah, or something like that," said President Gabrielle Kirby, "I don't know- it's Greek!" 

"Yeah, we don't speak Greek," agreed former president Zach Baker. "But it means serving hand. It's really a 
group about servitude, about learning how we can serve and fit in this community while we're here at Olivet." Open 
to students from any major interested in helping out, the club consists primarily of students studying social work. 
"It's different from ministries, because this is more a professional thing; it's what we'll do as a career," Kirby said. 

Member Melanie Toppmeyer explained, "It's more hands on. It's more of what we're going to be doing as a 
job. It's not just writing papers; we actually interact with people." People are, after all, what is closest to the heart of 
social work majors. "I always loved working with people, but I never really saw it as a career option until I checked 
out the social work department," Kirby said. Toppmeyer had a similar experience: "I just kept feeling like I wanted to 
help people, and I didn't really know how to do that. I didn't understand how that could be a job." 

They've found social work to be the perfect medium to channel their passion through. "I think there's just a 
strong urge to empower people in so many different ways, and I think we get that call from God," said Baker. With 
a broad influence, Diakonia reaches out to all sorts of different people groups, from foster children to the elderly. "I 
think social work majors find out that they like too many things. I wish there was something I didn't like!" Kirby said 
with a laugh. Diakonia's outreach is headed up by professor Jan Hockensmith, who leads by example. "She has 
very good hospitality for us," said Baker. "She's very caring, and she opens up her home to us. Anytime we need 
something, whether it's for the club or for classes, she's has the door to her office open, always wanting to talk and 
invite you in." 

One of the events the club sponsored this year, in partnership with One Hope United of Kankakee, was a 
Christmas party for foster children. The club passed out name tags which listed a child's name and a gift from their 
wish list to Olivet students, who then bought the gift and attended the party. "We had food and different Christmas 
games," Kirby said. "I enjoyed interacting with the kids." Diakonia is a group of students who at the core of their be- 
ing love people. "If I had all the money in the world, I would probably still do social work," Baker said, summing up 
the spirit of all the members.

The Exercise Science club has grown as a club with more people interested and attending. "We are hoping to have

schools," said club President Shara Southerland. The club desires to aid those who are filling out the Physical Therapist 
Centralized Application Service. They will also work with the dietetics club for their annual event, "Dump your Plump." 

In the beginning of the year they had a cookout and helped with Soles4souls, where over 500 pairs of shoes were do- 
nated. "We also had a career night, where we had two physical therapists, one occupational therapist, as well as a physi- 
cian's assistant come in and talk to students about their profession and what they had to do schooling-wise to get there," 
said Southerland. 

Exercise Science club was created in order to unite the department and teach those who want to go into physical 
therapy, athletic training, occupational therapy, and physician's assistant. "I'm involved because I care," said Southerland. 
"I have realized over the past four years that there are a lot of things I know now that I wish I would have known my fresh- 
man year here. I just want to be able to help those who are asking the same questions that I did."

The goal of the GlimmerGlass, our school newspaper, is to inform 
everyone of everything Olivet, including any new events, corruption, 
entertainment, or trends. This year the GlimmerGlass has assis- 
tant editors for each editor to help with writing stories and laying out 
pages. "A lot of the writing burden has been taken off the editors so 
we can focus on making sure all of the stories are good, the layouts 
look great, and the story ideas are interesting," said Life Editor Au- 
tumn Keiss. The Life section is also new, made by combining the Art 
and In-Depth section. 

Making the newspaper can be summed up in two words: stress- 
ful and exciting. "Editors have to use the events calendar. Tiger Text, 
posters, bulletin boards, word-of-mouth and other creative sources to 
find interesting stones for each issue," said Keiss. Then stories are 
assigned, written, edited by a section editor, and then edited again 
by the Executive Editor, Cathy Schutt. After all the writing and cor- 
recting, layout begins with using pictures taken by GlimmerGlass 

"A lot of work goes into the GlimmerGlass," said Keiss. "Count- 
less hours of writing, editing and laying out pages. It's important for 
readers to know how hard we work to put together a good product for 
them. The reader's needs always come first."

Do Christians have a responsibility to be green? Jenny Schoenwetter, co-president of the club Going Green, 
believes so. "God gave us something magnificent, and I believe we should strive to return it to its original beauty 
and stop it from getting worse," she said. "It breaks my heart to see creation filled with waste, so I do what I can 
to change that while encouraging others to follow." 

Promoting recycling on campus is a big way to do just that. Going Green encourages perspective shifts 
through crafts that reuse garbage along with documentaries such as Bag It, which asks, "Is your life too plastic?" 

Members of Going Green participated in The Kankakee River Valley Cleanup and hope to bring in a speaker 
from the Evangelical Environmental Network. Overall, their biggest goal is to get Christians thinking about the is- 
sue. "I love to introduce people to the passion that I have to go green," Schoenwetter explained.

A feeling of responsibility for what happens in the rest of the world is something that many Olivet students have. A 
group of these students decided to get together and form the Social Justice Club at Olivet. However, President Erin Ev- 
ans emphasizes that "We don't want to be a club focused on ourselves, but rather the needs of others throughout the 
globe. We strive to raise awareness of different injustices that a majority of the population is blind to." 

By initiating events and fundraisers to generate knowledge of real world issues, the Social Justice Club not only helps 
the cause, but it helps students at Olivet gain a greater understanding of the issues in the world. Kelly Fagerburg stresses 
that, "As busy college students, it is easy to forget how easy we have it here and lose sight of what is going on around the 
world that we, as Christians, have a responsibility to respond to. We hope that through the Social Justice Club we will bring 
to light the issues of children without shoes, war, and sex trafficking, and do what we can to end them." 

Ultimately, this group has a heart for what they are involved in. Fagerburg added, "We think this club is perfect for any- 
one who feels the same way, whether they know nothing about the organizations or issues we are representing, or have 
known about them for years. Also, TOMS are extremely popular among ONU students, so many already know about them; 
this is a way to be more involved with that organization. The war in Central Africa and sex trafficking are not talked about 
very often on our campus, and they may not seem relevant to college students. These issues are all too real and will affect 
our country and world if we don't do anything about them."

Without teachers where would we be? Kappa Delta Pi is a group of education majors who want to influ- 
ence the next generation. Senior Sarah Whitten describes Kappa Delta Pi as "an international honor society for 
educators. We work to prepare education students will skills and experiences such as teacher panels, principal 
panels, and a Literacy Alive program that promotes reading." 

Education students are invited to join Kappa Delta Pi during their junior year after they have been ac- 
cepted into the education program and acquiring a minimum GPAof 3.3. Whitten emphasizes that "Members of 
Kappa Delta Pi pledge to the ideals of faith in improving the education of children and young people, developing 
an inquiring mind, serving the community, and a willingness to work for the objectives of our profession." Presi- 
dent Lindsey Mecum sees Kappa Delta Pi's purpose as "promoting professionalism and excellence in teachers 
and to recognize outstanding contributions in the field of education. Overall, Whitten believes "Kappa Delta Pi is 
an organization that allows student teachers and pre-service teachers to connect to the others around the world. 
It is a wonderful organization that stands for excellence and the education of all."

Junior and senior family and consumer science majors are invited to apply and become a part of this 
honor society if they meet the requirements necessary. The mission of Kappa Omicron Nu is to empower leaders 
through scholarship, research, and leadership. However, Zarbuck emphasizes that Kappa Delta Rho is "a group 
of individuals who are committed to excellence and striving to better ourselves professionally so we can be pre-

Lambda Pi Eta is the Communication Honor Society on campus. The students involved become members 
of the National Communication Association. Communication majors are invited to become a part of it during their 
junior or senior year here at Olivet. 


The club is not all about the education, however. According to senior Allison Ascher, Lambda Pi Eta puts 
together activities like Commies in Costume, a Halloween party, and Communications Week, a time for Commu- 
nication majors to get together and learn more about the major and fellowship with fellow teachers and students. 
They also organize a service project. 

"Lambda Pi Eta is relevant to students at Olivet by giving fellow Communication majors a chance to fel- 
ilowship, teach and reach out to younger communication majors, and make a difference not only on campus, but 
also outside the reach of Olivet," said Ascher.

Interested in the equations, proofs, and imaginary numbers all associated with math? ONU's Math Club is not 
limited to just math and engineering majors. "Contrary to popular belief, we do not just sit around and complete 
math problems," said President Danielle Vander Schaaf. "Every club meeting is interactive and fun and does not 
require advanced math skills." Throughout the year they have many activities such as a mathematical photo scav- 
enger hunt, origami sessions, and the annual math murder mystery. 

The Math Club meets once a month to explore math-related topics. If the world of numbers sounds particularlyl 
appealing, then the Math club may be just the place for you.

Men can become a part of the council by signing up at the beginning of the school year, and by being on the council 
you get to help brainstorm new ideas and make decisions for events that will be put on throughout the year. The MRL 
council puts on events like the all-school tailgate party, Guy's Night, Manvember, and Juggernaunt. During Manvember 
the men don't shave for the whole month of November. For the month of "Manvember" male students who wanted to par- 
ticipate, received a "man card" that had a list of things for the men to do for women, such as cook them dinner. Through 
events like these, the men of ONU can come together and do manly things, while honoring Christ.

The National Association of IVIusiC Educators keeps music The National Association of Music Educators has 

educators connected. As Racinei Tschetter, club president, said, 
"There are several benefits of being involved with NAME, like go- 
ing to conferences, getting plugged in to the music programs in 
the area, teaching opportunities, and receiving articles." 

Members also grow into better teachers. At conferences, 
the members learn topics such as new music techniques. The 
group regularly has meetings consisting of committee work and 
learning opportunities. "Fall semester we had a workshop on Ko- 
daly," said Tschetter. "Spring semester we will have a few more 
workshops on teaching disabled students and show choir. We do 
fundraisers and have a party every semester." 

The workshops are something new this year as well as 
meeting twice as much as years past. There are also committees 
that help organize the work load and event planning. "I love how 
easy it is to be able to learn more about my field of study," said 
Tschetter. "Not only does NAME help with my educational needs, 
but it also helps with my promotional needs because it is a na- 
tionally recognized organization."

"The best thing about Mu Kappa is that even though we all come from different 
countries and have different backgrounds, we all share the common interest to work and 
play hard - there's never a dull moment!" explained Narmaly Jean-Baptiste, president of 
Mu Kappa. Once a club for only missionary kids, Mu Kappa has grown to include military 
children, international students, first generation Americans, and more. 

"The purpose of Mu Kappa is primarily to provide support and mentoring for 
these students, who sometimes face unique challenges in an American culture different 
from their primary culture," said Rebecca Schnurr, the faculty sponsor. This year the club 
focused on their relationship with MERC, who also aims to direct more student attention 
towards diversity. In April, they co-hosted Diversity Week with MERC and also participated 
in the FACS fashion show, sporting traditional dress and cultural wear. Diversity week 
included a talent show, a fair displaying boards prepared by MERC members offering infor- 
mation about their home countries, and ethnic dishes served in Ludwig. 

As students from across the world collaborate in Mu Kappa, they not only find a 
place within Olivet to belong, but add diversity to the rest of the student body as well.

MERC aims to spread ethnic diversity awareness throughout the campus as well as teaching everyone that no 
matter what race, we are all in the one body of Christ. "We have a stronger alumni base, better advertising strategies, 
and a more in-depth Facebook page and Twitter account this year," said G.E. Bennett, the club president. "We have 
also added more events and gained support from companies in the Kankakee area." 

This past year, MERC continued its tradition of hosting the annual Christmas Expressions event in Common 
Grounds where people read poetry, discussed how different cultures view Christmas, and sang holiday songs. "Christ- 
mas Expressions was packed out this year and filled with fellowship and laughter," said Bennett. The club also hosted 
a fashion show in March and Diversity Week in April. Bennett stated, "This week starts with a Diverse Celebrations 
dinner, Diverse Expressions which is similar to Christmas Expressions, and the greatest show on Earth: ONU's Got Tal- 

Bennett is involved because he wants to unite people of different races. He said, "When giving your all to some- 
thing, you have to believe in the very foundation and purpose of that entity. I believe in MERC and everything that it 
stands for and I hold true to the fact that we are not only teaching diversity, but also bringing people closer to God."

Although nursing students already spend a lot of time together with all the classes and large amounts of homework

way to give them something fun and more relaxing to be involved in. Level II representative Bethany Meredith explains th 
importance of this club to her, stating "I love NSA because we collaborate to uplift one another and encourage each other 
throughout our busy weeks, stressful days, and exciting moments". 

The "NSA has an executive council made up of 15 members representing sophomore through senior nursing students 
These members are elected for a one-year commitment to help plan events for nursing students, connect nursing student 
to service projects in the community and on campus, and promote health and wellness," states the NSA President, Rache 

Some of the opportunities that NSA has for its members to participate in are blood drives, bonfires, holiday parties, 
weekly devotionals, and article contributions to the GlimmerGlass about health topic. This year during their fall blood drive 
they were able to collect enough blood donations to break their previous record. The association also does two graduatioi 
pinnings a year and holds a party to induct new members each year as well. This year is the 50th anniversary of the Nursig 
Department, and to celebrate they are hosting an open house and an affinity dinner.

Geology students love taking trips to state parks to study tlie land, (ap) 

Olivet Geological Society is primarily for those who are earth scientists, but anyone is allowed to join in ord«^ 
to learn more about geology and grow with others who have the same passion. "We were able to do a campinc 
trip this year, which didn't happen last year," said Brian Schrock, club president. "We did a lot of hiking and ideril 
tied fossils. We also built some pretty big campfires where we sat around and talked for hours each night. Thell 
were tons of stars to see in the sky so we watched for shooting stars for about an hour." 

This trip took place at Apple River Canyon State Park (IL) in October and lasted for the weekend. The club'; 
activities are usually fairly cheap since they are for college students. This particular camping trip was paid for b 
the club funds, making it free for the students. Another trip the society likes to take is to the field museum whici' 
usually costs $20; this includes admission, the train ride fair and food. 

"We usually have a few OGS/department parties with the professors throughout the year," said Schrock. "V\ 
also try to do at least one camping trip each year, as well as a trip to the Field Museum in the spring." Schrock 
is involved because he loves to lead and encourage other people in joining his passion. "OGS is a great way to 
build friendships while developing a passion for the world around us," said Schrock.

Sigma Delta Pi, a Spanisln honor society, began in 1919 to recognize students who participate in Spanish language 
classes as well as those who have an interest in the language. "It honors those who have made contributions to the His- 
panic world through study and appreciation," said Jack Christensen. SDP currently had 12 members this year, and there 
are usually 3-10 students inducted each year. 

"We are in the beginning stages of joining ASC," said Christensen. "That is our biggest step this year. In the past, SDP 
has hosted Study Abroad Forums and soon we will be doing a service project for the community." The society has two 
inductions and a party every semester. The first induction occurred in the spring of 2008. The ceremonies for these news 
members includes an explanation of what the society's colors mean, what the emblem means, and what they are expected 
to do. 

Although its research, preparation, and application for a new chapter came first, the first induction ceremony was held 
during the spring semester of 2008. "I love the Spanish language, so getting involved was the right decision," said Chris- 
tensen. "My thought was, 'What is better than being with a group that has the same interests as me?. When the opportunity 
presented itself for a position of leadership, I wanted to pursue it."

The international Englisin iionor society Sigma Tau Delta pro- 
motes global literacy. However, only a number of people can enter 
the honors group. "Admittance to our group is based on GPA and 
number of English courses taken," said co-president Emily Spu- 
naugle. The society offers opportunities for leadership, scholar- 
ship, awards, and publication. According to their admittance letters, 
"Membership in Sigma Tau is sure to sweeten job resumes and grad 
school applications." 

At the end of February, their international convention was held in 
New Orleans, LA where 7 members' papers were presented. These 
students included Megan Dowell, Sarah Jensen, Autumn Keiss, Brit- 
ney Daette Marko, Ian Matthews, Jessica Mondy, and Dana Peter- 
son. "My paper was about a short story I read in American Literature 
last year," said Meg Dowell. "I analyzed the themes of true love and 
reality by giving examples from a story about two people who found 
a happy ending when there almost wasn't one. I never thought it 
would get picked." 

On February 23 in Benner Library's Fish Bowl, the society, along 
with the Student Dietetic Association, created an all-campus event 
for Dr. Seuss Day. "Sigma Tau provided fun games, and SDA made 
"Seussical" snacks," said Spunaugle. "Because Sigma Tau is an 
honor society and doesn't maintain much of a "presence" on cam- 
pus, it was a great opportunity to catch us 'in action.'"

even though healthy options aren't always the first thing you think of in the 

SDA is very involved on campus and in the community. They volun-

this career do so with a Christian attitude. 

The club has around 20-30 members each year and meets often for meetings and events throughout

SIFE moment was when I got to go to Haiti this spring break with four other SIFE members and personally de 

liver shoes to entrepreneurs who we've been writing business plans and sponsoring microloans for over the pa 

two years! It was such a cool moment to actually meet the Haitians that our project is reaching and see that wh 

we're doing for them is a matter of putting food on the table," emphasized Blunier.

According to Women's Residential Life Vice President Karyn 
Niciiols, tine goal of WRL is "Connecting women on campus and help- 
ing create an atmosphere that is fun for the ladies." 

WRL is involved in planning numerous events on campus. 
Nichols and her team of women help with Homecoming Coronation, 
the Sister 2 Sister ministry, Mr. ONU, and the Leading Ladies Lun- 
cheon. The group also puts on events like a women's self defense 
class and parties for girls in Sister 2 Sister. Nichols stated, "We as- 
sisted with Operation Christmas Child by helping promote it in the 
women's dorms and apartments. WRL even teamed up with MRL for 
some events this year." 

Nichols enjoys working with her fellow council members. "They 
are so hard working and creative. They are very responsive in helping 
me last minute, which I appreciate so much. I love brainstorming for 
events with them." WRL is an organization for women to provide more 
events that everyone on campus can enjoy and learn from. s^/^

"OUCH! Really Dr. Jay?" 

As if finals aren't stressful enough, many students walking around campus in December have the 
added challenge of guarding against incoming tennis balls, whacked at them with golf clubs by none 
other than a group of snickering professors. Only one posse is capable of such devilry: the Communica- 
tions Department. 

Headed up by the infamous Dr. Jay Martinson, the department consists of six teachers who make 
laughter a priority, whether they're teaching class, sailing down the Kankakee River dressed as pirates, 
or blowing off steam through a round of tennis ball golf. "We're allowed to deduct strokes if we "acciden- 
tally" happen to hit a student with one of the flying tennis balls," said Professor Mark Bishop, who won this 
year by nailing a student in the ankle. "So watch out, if you see us across campus, we could be aiming for 

"Although we take our call to produce competent communicators very seriously, we don't really 
take ourselves very seriously," said Dr. Emily Lamb Normand. Realizing that a strong department is uni- 
fied, the professors bond through the wackiness. "It's a rare opportunity to work with colleagues who are 
also among my best friends," explained Dr. Jay Martinson. "We function better as a team because we truly 
enjoy each other." 

That team maintains students as their burning priority. They've recently changed the curriculum for 
Communications majors to reflect the increasing convergence in media. "Our new structure will essentially 
"cross-train" media students in video, audio, writing, and speaking skills which are now expected of all 
media graduates," said Martinson. As Bishop put it, "These days, media companies are hiring one per- 
son who can do three jobs as opposed to hiring three people to do three different jobs. We're preparing 
students to stand out among other graduates." 

Since Martinson's arrival in 1993, the department has more than doubled in size. The biggest con- 
centration is now TV production, an area of study which didn't exist twenty years ago. Students have ac- 
cess to more than 20 cameras, two TV studios, an editing lab, premiere software, and leading internships, 
according to Bishop. "Our changes are taking a great program and making it better," Normand said. 
Perhaps the most important resource the department has to offer, however, is its people. Senior Allison 
Ascher, president of the Communications honor society, has recognized the difference: "I like how the 
Comm. department is all one big family," she said. "As a major, you go through so many different things to- 
gether, and you come to find good friends within the department. I also like that the professors are friends 
as well. They do silly things together, like golfing through the middle of campus." 

"All of life revolves around being able to interact and communicate effectively (through a variety of 
means); our department prepares students to do just that," Martinson said. "I want our department to pro- 
vide a training ground that pushes students academically and spiritually so that they can become lead- 
ers in their careers, communities, churches, and homes." As evidenced by steadily increasing numbers 
of Communications majors, students are willing to dodge a few tennis balls to learn from such a devoted 
group of role models.

Getting tired of the boring landscape of Bourbonnais, Illinois? Catch yourself daydreaming of places like England, Aus- 
tralia, India, or somewhere else? Then studying abroad might just be for you! With exciting opportunities all over the world, 
study abroad provides the opportunity for college students to earn credit while traveling the world. 

Senior Angela Williams is the student ambassador for the study abroad program and she studied abroad in Uganda this 
past year. Williams declared at the study abroad meeting, "Study Abroad is a very valuable experience even beyond the 
classroom." Katelyn Holmer also shared about her study abroad experience in Uganda and had a "rural home stay," during 
her time there. She commented that "you learn a different way of living." Senior Aubrey Sarna studied abroad in Australia in 
a program which offered arts, music, and theology. Sarna said, "When you study abroad, it's a great opportunity to try out 
new things." Senior Joshua Tracy claimed to be an introvert, but wanted badly to be in the music industry. He said that his 
study abroad experience was, "The thing that [he] needed to get [him] out of his comfort zone and boy did it ever!" 

These experiences are just a small sampling of many stories about study abroad. Perhaps this will be an opportunity for 
you to step out of your comfort zone and embrace a new land, a new culture, and a new outlook on life. As Professor Jan 
Hockensmith so aptly stated during the meeting, "It is a life changing experience."
